  2. Labor Day Weekend Dock Project

    This was really more of a carpentry project, but it met the criteria for posting. This dock replaces the old, basic dock that had rotted away and posed a danger. Dimensions are a large 16' x 12' with a 2ft cantilever over the water. The two outer corners were cropped to 45 degrees. I found a...

    Hi All, I'm posting this since I consider this phase of the project completed. I started this Glen L Squirt back in August 2016. It is just shy of 11' long (it will just fit up the basement stairs) and I have a 1957 Johnson 18hp outboard to hang off the transom. The frames are Sapele and...
  4. Rowboat

    I wanted to make a one person rowboat that I could easily toss in the back of my truck for a quick solo fishing trip. I started in August and put it in the water in early September. It worked better than expected. Floats like a charm and turns on a dime. I designed it based on photos and...

  6. Kayak rack

    After having our two kayaks stacked on top of some tubs in the basement for a year, I decided I should build a rolling kayak rack. I figured it would let me get them up out of the way, plus it would let me roll them out to the car instead of toting them in and out of the garage. I also hoped to...

    The 1982 Bayfield 25 sailboat that I have been rebuilding for the last year, originaly had a old and damaged cabin sole and plain fiberglass liner on top. Because I love the look of the true wooden boats of old, I decided to do a custom laminate floor and a sea trunk style. The floor was...

  13. Little Gem

    My son and I built this rowing skiff a few years ago. It is a design by Ken Swan, but we made a few changes to dress it up. It is very straight forward to construct if you follow his plans. The changes we made added time to the project, but was well worth it. We added a grate style seat up...

  18. 17 year old boat cruise.

    The short story… Started in 2000, finished July 2017. Now for the goss… I'd hate to have counted the number of beards my dear old granny could have grown while I was in the process of building this "ark". Why do I call it the "ark" you may ask? If you didn't, I'll ask it for you. Duck you...

    This is a cedar strip canoe that my wife built and I helped. Well, that's her story anyway ;). It took about 5 months, just weekends, 4 years ago.
