28' Cajun Folkboat Just Completed in Louisiana

William Atckinson Jr. just completed this 28' Cajun Folkboat, in Lafayette, Louisiana. These were originally powered with single cylinder inboard engines, but this version is adapted to work with modern outboards, from 10 to 65 hp. This is to take visitors on rides through the Bayous of the Atchafalaya Basin.

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:
