New Nova Scotian Grand Banks Dory

Kevin Power just finished his Nova Scotian Grand Banks Dory. Here's what he wrote to me:

Hey Jeff
I had sea trials for my Nova Scotian this morning. It's incredible! You drew up some beautiful lines and she glides effortlessly through the water. I hope to turn some heads on the Mystic River with her this summer.

This is the newer version of this model, and it came out 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:
