MyBoatPlans – The Easiest Way to Build Your Boats   Have you been thinking about building your own boat, but think it may be too much hassle? Don’t give up on your dream just yet! It is true that boat plans can be pretty complicated. No matter how passionate or enthusiastic you may be about having a boat made by your own hands, it won’t make up for being stuck with a design you simply cannot follow. Luckily for you, there’s MyBoatPlans. Master Boat Builder Martin Reid shares his 17 years of boat building experience with you on this site. Having developed a passion for boats and “all things marine” as a child, his father bought him his first boat plan on his twelfth birthday. Years later, upon the rediscovery of that first boat after his father’s death, he decided to try his hand at building the “real thing” and bought his first set of designs for a very basic dinghy. His excitement soon turned to disappointment as he realized the designs simply weren’t easy to understand.

Boat Building Plans – What You Must Know Before Choosing One Building your own boat can be cheaper than buying a manufactured boat. It can also be a great hobby for anyone who has some basic carpentry experience and enjoys working with their hands. A boat that you have made yourself can be a thing of pride and beauty and something to treasure for years to come. Of course, it takes a good deal of time and, though not as much as you would spend on a pre-made boat, a decent amount of money. Considering this, you certainly don’t want to just jump in and start such a project without the proper knowledge and the perfect boat plan. The Internet is full of boat plans. Many companies sell boat plans for a small price. However, they aren’t all worth the price. A lot of plans found online are quite old, so the finished boat could be an older design which might have several technical faults in the hull construction. The simplicity and convenience of using the Internet to find a boat plan won’t matter if you end up with a plan that will not work for you. You cannot know…

Get the Clutter Out of Your House   Far too many of us suffer from cluttered homes. Though we start off with good intentions and our homes might seem manageable when we first move in, somehow over time the story changes and we end up with “stuff” here and there that never seems to get put away. Soon, it reaches the point that it feels like we own far more than our homes are even capable of containing! There are times that we just want to get rid of all the junk that is constantly in the way. However, that is certainly a task that is easier said than done. Even if the entire family is involved in the process, it can still take so long that we often just leave it as it is and hope that we will either stop caring, or that the mess will just magically disappear somehow. Unfortunately, there are many different downsides to keeping a cluttered house. For one thing, no matter how you try to convince yourself that you have an “organized mess”, the fact is that all you really have is a mess. Things take longer to find when you’re sifting through…
