Center Console on 15' Alamitos V-Bottom Dory

Joe LeBanc added a center console to his homebuilt 15' Alamitos V-Bottom dory, this year. He said:

Thanks Jeff, for the great design. We made the upgrade from tiller drive to center console for this season. It handles great. We've got a 70 hp two stroke and it planes well and can handle the chop.

Nice job, Joe. I really like the pilot seat too.

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:
