Always give a word or a sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend, even a stranger, when in a lonely place. This weekend was a beautiful sneak peek at fall: wonderful weather, football, good friends, the lake after Labor Day, and Merlin.
Back when boats were made of proper materials like wood, chrome, and brass their lines were drawn for speed and handling not maximum seating capacity.
Yes, Merlin is a reproduction of a 1930’s Gold Cup race boat, not an original antique but driving Merlin is an authentic thrill.
It takes just a nudge to get Merlin out of the hole, cruising is a comfortable ride with the long bow and weight of the motor in front of you.
Timber boat plans features different styles of wooden boats you can build with the right blueprints, help and guides. Boat plans come in a variation of styles so it is also best to take a look at a sample, if possible. If you select a particular boat design check to see if it gives you a list of tools that you will want.
Boat plans can provide you with a lot to take into account, but it could be rewarding to know that you built something with your own hands.


Plans4Boats is the best book of detailed instructions and wooden boat plans that I could find on the net.
A kayak would be my first choice, would like to do everything from it, and it is just a perfect place to get away from the world. I was invited down to the lake to experience the magic of Merlin and since the light was perfect, we took advantage of the opportunity and broke out the camera gear.
Cold molded wood construction and modern big-block power mean little more maintenance than a production plastic boat assuming you take care of your tupperware.
Merlin sort of skids into turns until the inside chine bites and digs then you slingshot out of the turn and accelerate again, skipping down the lake. There are occasions that a company will advertise easy, but they were created by somebody who has an entirely different idea than you do. This will eliminate you needing to purchase lots of unnecessary things that won’t be utilized. It takes you to the experts who can show you in step by step instruction on how to build your first boat, no matter which wooden boats you choose from.
When Merlin runs down the lake heads turn and faces light up with big grins, especially from the older generation who have seen the faded pictures and heard the stories.


It would be a good idea to do a little investigation on the company, too to determine what sort of technical support they provide, if any, and look at testimonials from past customers.
It will also avoid being in the middle of a step and realizing that you don’t have what you need to finish your task. If they do not have a good follow-up background after the sale you may end up shuck without assistance. One more very important factor is to decide before you start where you will be constructing your boat. If you have never worked with it before you probably want to try something basic to begin with, and maybe later work your way up. Check the boat plans to see what the size will be at completion and then decide where you will have sufficient space.
