Tim Roualet Mackinaw Drift Boat Sailor

Tim Roualet just built one of my Mackinaw drift boat designs into a carvel planked sailboat. He sent me this email today:

Hi Jeff,
Had fun building it. Works just fine.

Tim did a beautiful job. I never saw this boat as a sailor, but it seems to do great!

Boat Building Photos

Please don't be embarrassed to send in photos of your projects. I get a lot of emails from people who tell me about their build but never send any pictures. I'd love to see them, as would all of the other people who are either building a boat or thinking about it. They need all the encouragement they can get.

I believe in offering you all the information you need to learn more about how to build a boat. That's why I offer free videos, free ebooks, and free reports. There's even some free plans available to isiders and some seminars I've delivered. To join, just click below:
