Albion Pacific Power Dory Launched in Massachusetts

Al Dettenreider launched his Albion Pacific Power dory in Massachusetts this summer. He stretched it to 20 feet to have enough space forward for several deck chairs that he and his family could enjoy while cruising the local lakes and rivers. He did a very nice job on it too. Al spent about a year working on it, and heavily used Mark Vicker's videos in the insider section as guidance. By the way, this is Al's first boat, and he started it when he was 82 years old.

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:
