Boothbay Mini-Dory Completed from Free Plans

I just received this email and these pictures:

Hi Jeff,

Thanks for the Free Mini Dory plan. This was a first for me and a great starter boat. Built it this past spring for the Grand kids who spent most of the summer with us at the lake house here in Alberta, Canada.

Having completed this one, I know now I can build any style.

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:
