We recently found out that our friend Chris Partridge, of Great Britain, has a blog called "Rowing for Pleasure". Give it a look.

Max sent a link to this website the documents the building of a Glen-L Monte Carlo Triple cockpit runabout.

I came across this site on ice-sailing. We never see conditions like this (Manitoba) as the ice will always have snow on it, but are there more designs and ideas on this type of winter sailing out there?


I have actually started a blog to post updates on my Ladybug construction and will try my best to take lots of photos so that other newbies may learn from my experience. I'm really excited and think I will start laying out and measuring everything on the plywood shortly.

I found a really nice site describing building an AF3. I am wondering if anyone has had experience with building with
Ultraply? It is used as an underlayment for floor coverings I believe. There is a close-up photo at the above site and the outer layers look great but not sure about the core layer. Has anyone boil tested it?



Thought the readers might be interested in this.

Hi Chuck - it's not a modern small boat, but it's quite interesting, all the same!

I've rehashed the Goat Island Skiff pages now with some really nice pictures we took the weekend after you were here. Importantly, the address has changed slightly...

...I've given the PDRacer website a remake graphically, and added a bit more content...

...I've also got the Eureka Canoe site up and running.

I keep the link to this Martha Jane site stable so it should be good for as long as you link to it. As far as I have heard, I am the only person to build the "revised" house version.

I found this video of Tom Hanks hawking one of the products that is made by one of our suppliers...

... and here is one of the popular Indigo Lantern - perfect for any boat. You can get one HERE.

placidapaddler posted a bunch of videos from the latest Everglades Challenge.

Have you ever heard of William Clements? You should check him out. Canoe builder, but he has some interesting supplies.

A couple years ago I started a long-term project to scan every negative and slide I've ever taken. It turns out I've been taking boat pictures since I was about 8 years old. Some of them are now posted.
