Burke Bailey's Bahia Panga Duck Boat

Burke Bailey just sent me these pictures of his recently launched Bahia Panga. Here's what he said:

Hi Jeff,
Well I finally launched my Bahia. I'm waiting for the registration to come but I have test run it. Built from 3/8 marine ply and feels like a tank. 5 hp motor will not quite put it on plane but will work for now. It has a removable duck blind that clamps to the top rail. It's a beauty and has drawn many compliments from all who have seen it. I look forward to trying a larger build.

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:
