XXXX GOLD BOAT BUILDING PROJECT- Which boat to build.


XXXX is a beer from Queensland. They decided to have a promotion based on home boatbuilding a few years back. This page was my attempt to capture some of the interest.

The problems was … the promotion wasn’t very interesting. I think one bunch of blokes built one boat. It is on youtube I think.

It wasn’t one of mine 🙂

WELCOME to the XXXX GOLD BOAT BUILDING PROJECT.

Boatbuilding is the BEST thing. But which boat to build with your mates?

Here are some links to simple boats that work well
http://www.pdracer.info – simple, cheap sailboat that works
http://www.duckworksbbs.com/plans.htm – the mother lode – includes the kitchen sink
http://homepage.mac.com/peterhyndman/eureka/ – simple canoe
http://www.instantboats.com/ – some simple boats including powerboats

Or super simple super cheap and semi disposable craziness

There is more general boatbuilding advice here – see the FAQ in the left margin
http://www.storerboatplans.com

But though the ad doesn’t say it … moderate drinking with boat use and boat building please. Don’t want anyone stapling their hand to the bench and not being able to reach the pliers to unhook themselves (It happened! One of my mates could reach the mobile though!)
