Master Boat Builder with 31 Years of Experience Finally Releases Archive Of 518 Illustrated, Step-By-Step Boat Plans “

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.
