PlyWooden Boat show in Port Aransas TX

Post by jacquesmm » Fri Sep 11, 2015 3:39 pm

There is an old thread about this but let's remind everybody that we are invited to join the Duckworks crowd and many other boat builders at the 2nd PlyWooden Boat Show in Port Aransas TX, on october 16th - 18th, 2015.
This will be our bateau builders meeting for that region.

Last year, we had 6 Bateau boats there. It was nice to meet our builders from that part of the country.
This year, several of our builders, maybe more than last year, plan to show their boats (unfinished boats are OK).
We must know how many boats we will have.
Please register at:

E-Boat (bateau.com) will reimburse the $ 20.00. You'll get a tee-shirt, dinner for two etc.

I plan to give two presentations, one about our material and building method and another about lofting on the computer.

Jacques,

I was not heading down until Friday afternoon but may come earlier in the day if you are speaking Friday. Do you know what day and time you will be doing your presentation?

Jacques,

I just entered my boat.

I'm excited to get to show it off and meet other builders.

I'm registered and bringing my Plyak 12. She's just in primer now, but may have paint by then.

Looking forward to it Dougster :D

Both my Skoota 28 and 10ft Duo are going to be there, and since Jacques sells the plans for them I guess that's two more

We are in Wa right now, the boats get loaded onto a truck/trailer on Oct 2nd and we should be in PA on the 8th, launching on the slip there

I've also been asked to talk again not sure when yet though

Hope to see some of you there

Not going to make it!
Sorry Jacques...

Was really looking forward to a first time meet with some of the forumite builders and get a chance to show my own C12, but it ain't gonna happen. Things have not progressed as well in the past 4 months as originally anticipated... what with too much working for a living getting right in the way of things.
Even if I just brought down the hull I still don't have a trailer to pull in underneath it.... so here's wishing ya'll a great weekend. For me it looks like next year now.
Here's current status - so near yet so far!

We had a great time! It was so much fun to see all the other projects out there, talk with other builders and show off the boat. We got to meet Cannonball, man that fs18 looks skinny. Dougster and Texasrds it was great to meet yall as well. Jacques I really appreciate you coming down and the time we got to spend together, I learned so much and hope to see you back next year.

Took this picture Friday morning upon arrival before too many other boats were around.

Not sure what we were discussing at this point but my other have snuck in this action shot of Jacques and I. We look a bit animated for sure.

Thanks for posting the pictures but I am doing with my arms raised that way? Oh yes, I remember, I was saying "Whow, what a great paint job on that D15." :lol:

I"ll email about the OD18 tomorrow AM, I am in Houston right now.
