A few from over the years, still have all of them except the yellow boat. Doesn't compare to what some of you guys have done but I have been looking at the B&B Ocracoke 20B and you guys are helping fan those flames. EDIT: Just noticed apparently I take pics from the stern quarter, never realized that was a natural tendency until I posted these.

Hats off to everyone. I have always wanted to build my own boat. I told my wife about 4 years ago that I was thinking about doing it. She thought I was joking until I was getting ready to purchase plans for an 18ft center console. Then she told me to just buy a boat instead. So I did

That's really cool, great job! What type of materials did use to build it and did you use any plans or your own design? My canoe works ok but this is what I wish I had built instead.

Thanks! Yours look great as well! I bought a set of plans from Uncle Johns @ Cajun Pirogue Wooden Boat Kit and plans but once I got the basic shape of the thing I went way off the plans. It is about 15' long. I added custom seats w/ storage, some ribs along the bottom to stiffen the area, spud pole holes, rails, etc. It is surprisingly fast and surprisingly stable - I am able to stand up in it easily. It was a really great project and I'm kinda itching to do another. It is plywood/fiberglass/epoxy w/ a graphite/epoxy bottom that slides really well through and over mud and vegetation. One tip if you decide to do a two-man pirogue: either make the seats movable or really play with weight distribution before you make anything permanent. I evenly spaced the two seats thinking that would give me even weight distribution but if both people are facing the same way it is extremely bow-heavy. My next one will be asymmetrical and likely a one-seater.

I've had some sheets of okuome it my wood shop for about 5 years now just waiting on me to make the time for a little hybrid layout boat I want to build. Looking thru this thread hopefully has me inspired to get cracking on it.

Bateau GF16. Not just because I spent hours building and sanding but it really is one of the best riding flat bottom boats I've ever been on. If you want any more pics or info let me know.

Also I know of one for sale if you're interested, guy did a great job on it:

In a day and age where a rigged out 16' aluminum is 10K at Bass Pro that GF16 is giveaway priced. The GF16 is vastly better boat in every regard and a very welcome break from being just another cookie cutter.
