Woodenboat Magazine - Online issues

Woodenboat Magazine

If you're like me, Woodenboat magazine is a favorite read. Their web site has lots of articles and great information but it also has full downloads for some of their back issues. The photography is top-notch and the boats are great. Some say that the magazine caters to east coast builders but it could be that there are just more of them back there.

Small Craft Advisor

small craft advisor website  Web site for the magazine, Small Craft Advisor has a great message board, photo gallery and web articles. You can also download back issues for $5.95.

I came across this site while reading about Charlie Whipple's wooden boat Resolution. Whipple built a Sundowner, a 21' plywood composit boat which tragiclly was lost on the rocks on her first voyage. You can read about what happened and see video on the Duckworks site here.

dory-man.blogspot.comI found a great web site tonight with lots of good stories and a focus on building and design. It's always nice when good stories have great photos to match and Dory-Man has both.

I suggest a good long visit.

Boat plans

Wooden boat plans from various sources on the web:

  • Atkin & Company - Many older plans, sail and power for traditional building methods
  • Duckworks Boat Plans - Many designers with free boat plans included
  • Glacier Boats - Great Alaskan 26, similar to Tolman Jumbo but longer and larger
  • - Plans, materials and books, Glen-L has been around for a long time. They have a wide range of designs.
  • - Remember all those boat plans in old magazines? Well, they're all here. They may look dated and they are but they are also free.
  • - Large collection of plans for all kinds of boats, they also have materials and other resources.
  • - Huge collection of links, articles and resources. Great list of boat plan links including free boat plans.
  • - One of the first collections of plans for home builders. I'd still like to build a Spray and the Tom Thumb is one I'm looking at too.
  • Complete plans and photos for the Portuguese Dinghy
  • Swan Boat Design - Small skiff designs
  • Thomas J. Hill - Long Point Skif and other small boats

If you have other good sites we should list, post them as comments and we'll add them.
