I also included a copy of his Carpenter's Certificate. This is required in some places to register, like Alaska, and it servers as a Birth Certificate for your homebuilt boat. It'll also work with receipts to demonstrate that you built the boat, you didn't just fix up a boat you found floating in the weeds that wasn't originally registered to you.

I supply signed Carpenters Certificates to any boat builder who builds one of my boats and sends me photos and build notesof his project and requests such a certificate.

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:
