Have you been thinking about building your own boat, but think it may be too much hassle? Don’t give up on your dream just yet! It is true that boat plans can be pretty complicated. No matter how passionate or enthusiastic you may be about having a boat made by your own hands, it won’t make up for being stuck with a boat plan you simply cannot follow. Luckily for you, there’s MyBoatPlans.com. Master Boat Builder Martin Reid shares his 17 years of boat building experience with you on this site.
Having developed a passion for boats and “all things marine” as a child, his father bought him his first boat plan on his twelfth birthday. Years later, upon the rediscovery of that first boat after his father’s death, he decided to try his hand at building the “real thing” and bought his first set of boat plans for a very basic dinghy. His excitement soon turned to disappointment as he realized the plans simply weren’t easy to understand. After a lot of hard work, countless hours and guessing, he ended up with a half-finished boat he could do nothing with. He ended up buying more plans and trying again. After yet more wasted money and materials, he ended up with another half-finished boat. Naturally, he nearly gave up on his boat-building dreams.
Luckily for him, he ended up meeting a local, master boat builder who was kind enough to take him under his wing and help him follow the plans he had purchased. Thanks to this, his skills eventually improved and he built his first boat. That was just the beginning. Now, he has over 200 original boat plans, written in a simple, step-by-step format, available to you. He wants to share them so that you don’t have to go through all of the same boat-building frustration that he did. Following these illustrated, high-quality guides and plans will guide you every step of the way in building a boat of your own.
