Daniel Mode's 15' [4.6 M] Glousterman Ultralight Dory

Daniel Mode completed his Glousterman Ultralight Dory and uses it for fishing frequently. It is a stitch and Glue design that weighs about 42 lbs complete. He says he powers it facing forward using a double paddle and says it moves along just fine that way.

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:
