Cockpit Primered


  1. This story reminded me of how I began in the great hobby of building boats.

    As a child, my dad would take me to the harbor and I would watch the boats bring in their catch for the day. It all seemed very magical to a young boy.

    I started building tiny model boats but due to our familie's financial situation, I could never graduate to building a "real" boat.

    Fortunately, when I grew up and started working, I was able to afford to build bigger boats. However, the plans that I found were incredibly difficult to understand and I never got past the "half-finished" stage.

    I was on the verge of giving it all up. Luckily for me, I came across some easy-to-follow instructions that have allowed me to complete some wonderful boats.

    I could go on and on, but you would do well to check out the plans for yourself:

  2. this is a fantastic website - thank you for diligently uploading your photos and story with it. I have plans for the DD26, and your site will help me to build (one day). Please keep up the great work!!
