Will Smith's Caladesi Carolina Dory for Crabbing

Just got this email and pictures of a Caladesi Dory just completed. Here's what the builder had to say about it:

Here are a few pics of my boat ready for crabbing. It rides & handles well. Its a crowd stopper.
Thanks for your help.

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:
