Bud (Charles) Woolfe's 16' [4.9 M] Wye River Garvey Dory Under Power

Bud Woolfe tested out his Wye River Garvey Dory using a 9.9 hp motor. Here's what he had to say.

Today was our first day out to test it using a 9.9 hp. That we already had. The boat was so smooth on the lake and handle the light waves very well and felt very stable. We are very happy with the 16 ft Garvey.

He is shopping for a 25 hp motor right now for this boat.

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:
