Jason Thompson's Wye River Garvey Dory

Jason Thompson just sent me a question about his current boat building project (A Glousterman Ultralight Rowing Dory) and sent along this photo and description of his previous project, a 16' Wye River Garvey/Dory. Here's what he had to say about it:

The Wye River Garvey I constructed from your design is WONDERFUL. I modified it a bit and added an inboard jet. It easily handles 4 inches of water at 32 mph upstream and 36 mph downstream on my local Chemung river!
Thank you,
Jason Thompson

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:
