Bahia Mini Panga Nearing Completion in Australia by Justin Ackland

The builder of this 12' Bahia Mini Panga, Justin Ackland, just posted these on Facebook. He's from Australia. I think all of the 12' Pangas I have photos of come from Australia, for some reason. In any event, I like the flip-up sand wheels he has added. One of my good friends, who does a lot of metal working, says he can build these from stainless very easily. It makes an easy remote launch arrangement to drop it in the water where you don't have a launch ramp.

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 insiders and some seminars I've delivered. To join, just click below:
