Build your own boat

Small boats are a lot of fun.  You can build one in your garage, and have it in the water in no time.  The boats I have built are all made with inexpensive materials. Economy exterior grade plywood, epoxy and a bit of glass tape.  Then later after testing it out, a coat of paint or varnish to protect it from the sun.


This boat started life as a project with my son.   We didn’t have much room but we were living 2 blocks away from a beautiful waterway.  How could we not build a boat for it..


This little boat I built in 2 weeks and it really flew..    Fast and light, all done in plywood.  Light enough to car top alone, stable in the water and finished in white polyurethane paint.


This was an experimental boat, an outrigger. She draws lots of attention whenever I head to the water and sails beautifully.  Narrow to easily walk along footpaths, assembly time is 10 mins..
