First Robalo Panga Launched

Matthew Basura posted this on his Facebook Page. He is from San Pedro California, and he just launched his homebuilt 16' Robalo v-bottom Panga in Los Angeles harbor. He said it was very peppy with its 15 hp motor and handled well in the windy and choppy bay.

Looks perfect for the coastal Southern California ocean, where I fish a lot myself.

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:
