Boat looks great man! We redo a lot of wooden boats and sail boats over the
years. We are always browsing the web for interesting boat building material.
Any plans for new projects coming up? PS Hello from Michigan!

Really like your site. My fiberglass buddies think I'm crazy. Nice to see others
that love wood. Lots of work but somebodies got to do it.

I have been given a 14ft sailbaot that has sat pretty much unprotected for 7 years. There is no rot and other than new sails looks like all it needs is surface finishing and some rigging. I hope that there is no major structural issues. I really appreciate your page and it will be read through several times as I venture to get this craft seaworthy. Thanks.

I have been asked to build a replacement rudder for a 21 foot wood sailboat but I have no idea what the best type of wood for this project is. The oringinal rudder is very cracked and weathered making identification difficult,any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanx

I have a model of a 45 foot fishing boat and I am putting together some notes on how to build the boat exactly as the model, I have had some success but I am having trouble on the plank. How do I measure and cut the plank so the plank are same on both sides and and how do I measure the shape of the sheer strake plant.

This is a good thing, this is the only boat restoration blog i have found (except mine) but this one is way more sophisticated.

I have a rotted flat bottom on my 19 foot canoe yawl. The rest of the boat is all cedar, but the stringers are marine plywood. Can I sister new marine plywood stingers over the ones that are partially rotted and then rip out the rotted wood of the stringers after I have attached the new marione plywood bottom?
