Hand Built Boats

Recommended Posts

Most are built with 1/4" exterior pine plywood with white pine lumber for the framing.  Using common construction materials allows me to keep the cost within my "for fun" budget.  We have gotten good service out of the boats with reasonable care.  I like building with traditional  "by hand and eye" method with no fiberglass or epoxy.  Marine plywood is better quality, but much more expensive.  It would be easier to work with.
