Eric Stremmel's Recently Completed 17' Tilamook Pacific Power Dory

Eric Stremmel just completed this Tillamook Pacific Power Dory. He sent me this e-mail and pictures yesterday:

Hi Jeff,
I wanted to send you pictures of my Tillamook. The frame is Douglas fir and white oak with half inch meranti plywood over it. Clothed , epoxied, and painted with Brightsides. Used the roll and tip method and was amazed with how smooth it came out . People think it is fiberglass. All exposed wood is white oak epoxied and varnished. It really gets up and goes with a 50 hp on it. The ride is smooth and dry. Could not possibly be happier with the way it turned out.
Thank you!

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:
