"A small fishing boat" is pretty general, but I have noticed that we have several members who have made mention of boatbuilding.
I think there is one or two in the "Introductions" section and maybe in another or two.
Come to think of it, we have a suprising number of members who have mentioned a passion for it. Try the search function or just thumb through the archives and recent threads I bet you'll hit paydirt, and then you can get a discussion going with one or two or all of them hopefully.
If we get enough boatbuilders you guys may even need to have your own section!

My dad built a small sailing yacht when i was young , oh then again it sank as soon as he put it in the water, so the plans for that may not be a good idea

Here is an Australian forum that has a wooden boat building section. Hope it helps.

What a coincedence! My first bike was a '81 model CX500! I bought it off our lead singer at the time, ran it out of gas one night, morning at 2:00 a.m. actually, after a late night practice jam, clicked it into nuetral and reached down to switch to reserve while coasting down the highway and viola! I WAS in reserve!
There is alot more to the story I'll save it for a rainy day.

I listened to half of Horseman and all of guitar Fun. Nice work

I wish I had some recording capability to send you a drum track for Guitar Fun.
I think it's begging for a syncopated back beat wit a fat snare and, couple of breaks, some dynamics, and Sammy Hagar (Who I don't really like but man his voice!) and you have a #1 hit!

No kidding nice work I'm gonna listen to more later. I would like to record Guitar Fun to disc can I do that?
