Re: Boat Building Made Easy…
Dear Fellow Boat Enthusiasts,
I was just like most of you when I began in the great hobby of building boats.
My fascination with boats began as a very young child. My father would take me out to harbor, and I’d watch the boats bringing in the “catch of the day”. It all seemed so magically to me as I think back to my childhood.
As my love of all things marine grew, my father started to take notice. On my 12th birthday, my father took me to the tiny woodshop behind our house. On the table was laying some type of a blueprint or plans for a project. My father was quite the handyman and was always working on something around the house, but these wooden boat plans looked much different than any I had seen in the past.
My Passion For Boats Started As A Young Child
He continued to tell me that this was my birthday present. A piece of paper? I have to say for a moment I was incredibly disappointed. My father then proceeded to explain that these plans would help us to build my first model boat… I know, not what you were thinking.Because of our financial circumstances, my father and I were never able to construct anything larger than a simple model, but my passion for boats only grew.
Things worked out well for me after I left home. I got a good job and made a wage that was more than adequate to cover my family’s expenses and even put some back. On a trip back home after the death of my father, I was going through some of his old things and found that first boat we’d built together. I’d be lying if I said it didn’t bring back some of the best memories of my life. I loved building those tiny boats and always dreamt about building the “real thing”.
I Purchased My First Set Of Boat Plans
And Got To Work… How Exciting!
When I got back home, I found a local shop that had plans for a small dinghy. It was a very basic boat, but I ran home with the boat building plans and got to work. I’d done this several times before, just on a smaller scale.
However, after slaving away for countless hours and using any spare time that I had on my project, I realized that it was not coming together as easily as I had thought. The plans I had purchased were incredibly difficult to understand and left a lot to be desired. I ended up guessing and basically had a half-finished boat that could not be salvaged.
Or Was It? These Boat Plans Could
Have Been Written In Greek
I went out and purchased some more wooden boat plans, not really knowing exactly what I wanted to build. Once again, I forked over more cash on some plans that could have been written in Greek! I spent far too much on materials as the plans just weren’t clear and once again I ended up with a half-finished boat.
After spending thousands of dollars on my childhood dream hobby, I was on the verge of just giving it all up. Trust me; at that point, my wife would have been incredibly happy if I had. My “hobby” was stressing me out and I still did not have a completed boat to show for the time and money I had invested.
Another Half-Finished Boat Almost Caused Me
To Give Up On Boat Building Forever
I’m sure most of you have been there at some point… you’ve put your blood, sweat, and tears into a new project and get stumped somewhere along the way.
Just when I was about to give it all up, through sheer luck, I was fortunate enough to be introduced to a local, master boat builder. He held my hand over the next year and would help me “fill in the gaps” on the boat plans I had purchased. This gentleman truly took an interest in me and my passion for boats. I think he was just trying to give something back…
It Took The Mentoring Of A Master Boat Builder
To Complete My First Boat
Eventually, my skills improved, and I could proudly say that I had completed my first wooden boat. Without that man’s knowledge, I never would have succeeded on my own by solely using the low quality, expensive boat plans that are commonly available.
And what I discovered was this: Building boats is not hard if you have a step-by-step approach to follow.
31 years later, I’m still building boats.Over the years, I’ve amassed over 500 of my own boat plans!
In order to help out some of my friends that also participate in this great past-time, I decided to go above and beyond and include simple, easy-to-follow, step by step instructions with all of my boat plans. Since I don’t have the time to mentor every person I meet that is interested in learning to build boats, I felt like this was the best way to give back…
After 31 Years Of Boat Building,
I’m Giving Something Back…
The illustrated plans and boat building guides that I’ve created are of such high quality, that those that I’ve shared them with have said it’s just not right to keep these stashed away in a private archive only to be seen by a select few…
That is because I decided to compile them into a collection and offer them to all boat builders so you can benefit from my 31 years of experience and feel like you have a master boat builder guiding you through each and every boat project. one step at a time.
