The small boat building article series that was planned a long time ago is back on the fore front! I had started working on a series of articles "Small boat, more pleasure!" and a hard drive crash, personal problems, the usual list of excuses..., didn't get done. But lots of tides have ebbed and flowed and the smell of plywood sawdust is near at hand! Stay tuned.
We kicked off 2016, our 11th year (!), with a plan from Italy, the IDEA 21. This is our first plan presentation in quite a while I hope you enjoy it.
We follow up with the third part of our series on boat wiring - protecting your wiring with fuses and circuit breakers.
Please submit your own content for free publication on this site. Designers: if despite current economic gray clouds you are still drawing plans for amateur builders this is the place to make them known. Kit makers we need details about your kits too! Despite my long spell of abandon the site still draws over 4,000 readers a month (an increase of 1,000 since Dec 2014) who are reading more than 3 pages per session. This is not the 10,000 readers we had once upon a time but it is still three thousand builders or potential builders. Your call...
FAQ: No this site does not sell plans. Some designers have affiliate programs which means that the site gets a percentage on plans sold if you click on the "buy plans" links or advertising banners.
No this site is not a business. Please stop SEO people, I am sure I can handle site promotion on my own...
