Clemente V-Bottom Dory on Lake Erie

Randy Novak sent me this picture of his 24' Clemente V-Bottom Dory. He says:

Hi Jeff,

We have had simply outstanding walleye and perch fishing on Lake Erie this season. I have learned a lot too about the fishery and boating there there this year. Not to mention made many new friends and got back in touch with old friends because of this great boat. She is powered with a 90 hp 25" shaft 4 stroke Mercury. It is perfect power match and perfect for trolling in following seas. Running about half throttle at 16 knots in mostly three foot heavy chop.

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:
