Landing Craft Door Options Added to Three Garvey/Dories

Because several customers have added bow doors (like a WWII Landing Craft) to my Garvey Dory designs, I have come up with an option on the 16' Wye River, the 19' Galveston and the 23' Puchie Special to add this feature. The design includes the hardware and sealing method that can be purchased at a popular online and phone order industrial distributor. These are great for wheelchair access.

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:
