Seneca Pacific Power Dory Launched in Minnesota by Ben Simonowicz

I just got this email and video from Ben Simonowicz:

Hi Jeff,
I'm sending you some photos of my recently completed Seneca which I stretched out to 15'6". I had a blast building it and already want to build another!
With 300lbs of rocks in the boat and myself (modeling a motor and another person) it sits in about 4-5 inches of water and moves 3.4mph with a 50 thrust trolling motor. Next week I'll be putting a 40hp Mercury on it with a center console.
Thank You!
Ben Simonowicz

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:
