Building a 19’ Sailboat!


When I was 18, myself and 2 of my closest friends decided we wanted to build a sailboat. I’m not sure why, maybe it was our love for the water, or maybe it was our obsession with Jimmy Buffet, either way it is one of the most memorable projects of my life. We set out armed with only the most basic of tools, a set of plans we ordered offline from Stevenson Projects and a dream! It took us almost 2 years to complete the boat. We learned a lot during this project, we learned about teamwork, fiberglass and most of all, not to leave Kyle alone with Bondo! The boat was 19’ long and could ride 4 and sleep 2 and the plans are still available online. It truly was one of the greatest experiences of my life!
