    I’ve ordered my plans and will be building her over the winter, 2019. This is an incredibly inspiring series. Loved what you have done to get these kids excited about wooden boats. And, no plywood! So much more satisfying that way. Kudos to one and all.

    I’ve been binge watching the series. In the last couple hours, I watched what was a rather dazed group of indifferent kids turn into a gang of enthusiastic boat builders. When the one young lady, having just cut the stem, said of the outwales, “Can I cut these?”, I can honestly say, I had to catch a tear. Beautiful, guys. Simply, beautiful.

    I work with our grandkids on boats, chicken coops, fence repairs, fuel bunkers, trails in the ravine, tent platform…that profound sense of happiness I feel with the magnificent 7 (soon to be 8) I experience watching these videos. Many thanks from the Left Coast.

    I have enjoyed very much watching these kids get involved in each segment of construction of this skiff, but I have have missed the girl who whistles while she works.
