First 23' Ixtapa Panga Completed in Florida

Ken Waters just completed the first known Ixtapa Panga. He's planning to launch it today. Here's what he said about it on my Facebook Group, "Boat Building and Builders:"

May I introduce to the Boat building group my newly completed Xtapa Super Panga. Her name is KNOTTY WATERS. Her first launch will be tomorrow morning. Thanks Jeff Spira for your design!

His wife says the epoxy fumes much have gotten to his head, with that wooden motor cover. The only thing I can say is NICE!

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:
