This is the seminar I gave at the 2016 Port Aransas Wooden Boat Building exposition. In it I discuss the different construction methods for homebuilt boats, beginning with the traditional carvel planked boats, and going through lapstrake, cold forming, and my own plywood composite method, as well as stitch and glue construction methods. I discuss the methods used, fasteners, bonding, fiberglassing, and lots more aboyt how to build your oun boat.

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:
