The Key to Building a Stable Boat

22 Jul

Building a stable boat can be difficult at times , because you have to take in consideration of the structure
of the boat and what material must the boat be built on. I will show you key techniques and structures you can
use to build your stable boat .

First of all , you need to know the weights of the boat in it’s specific area , for a boat to be stable you would want more weight in the middle of the boat so that it won’t tip off. High Density dead would be the most efficient way to lower the center of gravity . Make sure the weight between all side of the boat is equal to eachother so there won’t be a problem in balance . The boat needs to way atleast more than the twice the weight of yours so that when you sit on the boat it won’t feel uncomfortable or off balanced .

Second of all , make sure the boat is not too skinney if you want it to be stable . Sure a square boat won’t go as fast as the skinny boat , but hey , I’m trying to give you some tips on how to build a stable boat .

Third , You would want to make sure you boat is covered with a covering that doesn’t let the material of the boat absorb as much water as it should be(unless it’s steel or someother material than wood) .

Here’s some boat plans that could help you build a stable unique boat , there are tons of plans . I’m usually judgemental on these types of products. If your hobby is building boats , I suggest you to check this package of boat plans out . But because I like to review stuff, I’m going to review the boat plans. Lets start out with the price of this boat plan package .The boat plan package is $49  , about 11 dollars less than a new video game , but it’s still an expensive price for me . But if you have a hobby of building anykind of boat you want from jetskis to canoes , I highly suggest you to check it out . If you feel confident in your self to design your own unique boat , then don’t buy it and save yourself $50. The boat plan comes with more

 

than about 200 boat plans , a 3d boat designer software , and 3 other bonus including the boatbuilder’s handbook for newbies . For a boat plan I would rate this product a 9/10 for the amount of stuff that comes with it , but 7.5 out of 10 when it comes to showing you how to build the boat , it could of been more specific like a cook , but hey it’s a boat plan .
