    Default Boat building blogs

    Can you tell me some of your favourite boat building blogs. I’m well aware and up to date on Leo and A2A but there must be others.
    Im more interested in keel yachts 25 - 35 ft

    I've been following this couple for years, they finally pulled away for the dock this summer but the YouTube archive of the entire build is available.

    If you would have a good boat, be a good guy when you build her - honest, careful, patient, strong.

    The conversations on Reddit and SA have been super entertaining... every day I look forward to seeing which predictions have come true on that train wreck of a project.

    The posts here on the forum by J. Madison are excellent and quite informative. His posts are now from the cruise of the ketch Julia, now in the South Pacific. Earlier posts dealt with restoration , rigging, fitting out of their Ingrid 38. Some YouTube content from him as well. Among other things, lots of great content on casting bronze hardware and serving synthetic rigging.

    I have also greatly enjoyed Bob Emser's YouTube posts on the build of a Haven 12 1/2 (smaller than your interest), search YouTube for Art of Boatbuilding. He takes great joy in making most of his hand tools and casting all of his hardware in bronze (sand cast and lost wax). Great craftsmanship and artistry.

    thanks Keith but I reckon the only thing saving that boat from sinking is the mud
