Craig Bias' Pescadero Carolina Dory in Florida

This was in my inbox this morning:

Hey Jeff,
Thought I'd send some photos of a Pescadero I recently finished. As you can see, I took some liberties with the interior. The boat floats in about 4-5" of water and runs over 20 mph with two guys and fishing gear (Suzuki 20hp). Thanks for an awesome design; the boat handles great and makes a terrific fishing platform.
I live in the west central Florida coast and built this to be a Tarpon hunter!

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:
