Building a home on the water

Read the first part of the book – below.

There are many ways to get on the water. Building is one way, and there are many choices available to you to save money by doing things yourself. And in the end, you have a boat made how you want.

If you are interested in building a boat, inside the book you will find lots of things to help spark new ideas. The book is my story, of how I built a 40ft catamaran.

I tackled some things a little differently to how it is normally done, and they worked. I describe each stage of the build, what it cost, the difficulties and the things I learned along the way.  

Available as ebook or paperback – Expand the sections below to read more. You can also “look inside” the book on Amazon, or download a free sample and read it on your phone or Kindle.

Boat building is a pastime that has brought me much joy and it is much easier to do than you think. This Guide is condensed version of the book “Small Boat Building”. There are tips throughout, and notes on safety to keep you healthy while you build.

This PDF Guide is written for building with plywood and epoxy, but much of what is covered here can be applied to other types of wooden boat building. You can use the information here to help you build boats from anybody’s Plans.
