How to Build a Boat That Will Last

Let’s talk about boat design and construction safety. This is an important topic and not one to gloss over on the way to building your boat. First off consider the fact you, as the builder of your boat, are solely responsible for building it in a safe and functioning manner.

This is the reason that you don’t want to cut corners. However, that said, considering liability issues, don’t let fear of being sued stop you from building that boat!

I have purchased and reviewed many boating products, See what I have found out

Here’s why…

As you are the builder, you are in complete control of the quality of the construction. I am sure you also want to build a boat that your family will enjoy for years to come. To do this you must keep quality as the number one priority.

To get you going there are three things you can do now that will ensure quality.

1) Use only the best design software available.
Good boat design software is foundation that is needed to build a strong and lasting boat. There are many software or CAD packages available and they vary in price hugely. However it should be noted that just because it is more expensive, this does not automatically mean it is better. It may simply have extra ‘bells and whistles’ that you simply will never need…

2) Use the proper building materials
Choosing the proper building materials to match the body of water your boat will be used on. I have already gone over this in more depth in one of my other articles, however to recap some of the materials that are available are: plywood, aluminum, fiberglass, wooden planks and even steel. Think of it this way, you wouldn’t build a 17′ fiberglass boat to be used solely on the open Ocean waters… that would be suicide. Be sure your method of choice is strong enough to withstand the waters the boat is going to be used on.

3) Keep in mind who will be using your boat.
For most of you that main people that will be with you in your boat are loved ones family or friends. You don’t want anything to happen to your loved ones while they enjoy an evening on the water in your custom made boat. Keep this in mind and you won’t take short cuts.

Common sense goes a long way in building a safe boat. You want to be proud of the final product, it’s one thing if the boat sinks the very moment it hits water and altogether different if it sinks an hour out with you in it.

Finally, you want confidence in your creation when inviting others to join you onboard. A poorly built boat will offer no confidence at all. Definitely think safety at all times while building your custom boat and you will be fine. Not to mention, your time and money is going into this venture, so make sure it counts.
