19' Garvey, BIG BEN
Yes I have just finished building a Big Ben GARVEY and it has been a lot of fun. I am a retired farmer and I do not play golf. I laughed when I received the plans and wondered what had I let myself in for, I took my time adopting the measure twice cut once method and would recommend the use of templates as much as possible, it shows just how things will look and if you make a mistake it is on a cheap piece of ply not expensive marine ply. It is easily driven and stable, most suitable for the type of boating we will be using it for. I found both DOUG HYLAN and the guys at the Wooden Boat Store most helpful with info and support. It is the first boat I have ever built, I called it BEGINNERS LUCK.
Left out the fifth star because I’ve had plans from other designers with significantly more detail. That being said, everything I should need appears to be there.
