Welcome to my little piece of the boat-building web.

This site is my own attempt to help my own and other’s boat-building dreams along the path a little farther.

In my boat-building research and reading, I have found a collection of online ‘communities’ that I have leveraged heavily. They all have some different interests, overlaps, and conflicting opinions, but also have many similarities and shared goals. I hope to be able to post some various articles and links that show the similarities and synergies, maybe tying a few of these communities together.

I’ve used this site to various ends:

  • Posting news and articles pointing to new “events” in the boatbuilding world. These may be actual events, or newly discovered plans, or other items of interest.
  • Organizing a bunch of personal research I’ve done and have scattered around
  • Making some of this research available to others… maybe it will save somebody some time
  • Soliciting some comments and further input into some of my (probably hairbrained) ideas
  • Providing some book reviews and/or commentary about resources that are available
