The Story of how I built a 3-metre plywood boat in my garage. This video goes step by step through the process of building this plywood and epoxy boat in 1 month. Working with my son after school.
It was all built using basic tools in a one car garage. It is a great low-cost project and I didn’t need registration or a licence (in Queensland, Australia). We could walk the boat to the water, without the need for a car or trailer too!
A BUILDING GUIDE will be available shortly – Feb 2018. It has all the tips and info you need to build ANY small boat like this. Not just this boat. Join our Mail List and I will send you a free copy.

The hull was redesigned and modified after launching so that the centre channel was reduced in steps toward the stern (back of the boat). This gave the best of both worlds then with improved stability, eliminated propeller cavitation that occurred in turns but still provided good planing and wave piercing due to the deep V bow shape. The plans available now incorporate this change.
