New Carolinian Carolina Dory Launched
This beautiful Carolinian Carolina Dory was recently launched in Alaska. The builder did an excellent job and his workmanship shows. He elected to build it with a well mounted outboard instead of the usual transom mount.

New Free Boat Plans Page
I recently updated my Easy To Build Boat Plans site with a new page featuring two boat plans you can download immediately for free. The first is my 12' Huntington Harbor Kayak, Dozens of these have been built to date and are being used in lakes rivers and the ocean. I also now offer Free downloadable plans for the all new Booth Bay 9 foot mini Grand Banks dory. I just completed the design and already there are several under construction. I'll reward anyone who sends in the first photo of a completed hull with a special prize. http://spirainternational.com/hp_frpl.html

New Canadian Drift Boat Launched
This newly built Canadian drift boat was launched recently and is shown here on a river in Michigan. The builder did an excellent job and is ready for many more fun fishing trips this summer. See how a few hours in your garage each week, only a few hundred dollars in materials costs, can turn a woodworking project into an inexpensive summer of boating fun. Check out more easy-to-build boat plans on my main page.
