KYAfield: Boat plans new link below http://fw.ky.gov/Kentucky-Afield/Pages/Plans-for-Building-a-Flat-Bottomed-Boat.aspx 

Carlo Williams: A rebel yell from down here in the low country of S.C. The boat building was a eye opener .Something I was looking for a simple plan for a boat. Should work good in the swamp and marsh down here. Thanks & a Rebel yell 

Jared Colahan: I did this boat , But I had 3/4 inch plywood, It took me 10 hrs of labor, parts of three days I was tickled , It was water proof and my son and I put it in the lake . thats 425 lbs and were 3.5 inches in the water. biggest downfall is the wieght. I used five sheets and 14 ft long.

SISSA MARQUES: It's a floating box !

Andy Mueller: Thanks for this video. I have zero knowledge of woodworking and this project actually looks within my reach - a good place for a beginner to start. I can't wait to see how this comes out - I'll post pics.

Oleg Kamenskih: Guys! you have all the tools to build a good boat. And you build that crap

MrMultitool: I like your boat and I would like to build 1 myself.I think my son and I would get a kick out of fishing out of a boat that we built.I know I would!

Mon S: Is that just a box?

MrTroutguy: about how much do you sell these for?

Techpabiii: how long is it?

Joe Butler: do you have to register one of these boats?

Vincent Saliba: can u show how 2 build a 7 feet long boat

MallardRidgeDucksCo: How long is the boat? Also, how do you get the 1x2 boards to bend?

Joe Butler: how far back from the bow do you put the curve in?

William Fossat: By the way, thanks. It was a real simple-to-understand video.

Tyler4762: How much did this all cost together?

Malcolm MacKinney: Why not use exterior grade GIS plywood as Marine ply is very expensive? The boat will not be kept in the water at a mooring so Ext grade should last OK. Also suggest using epoxy instead of gorilla Glue.. . 

App PlayStore : thaiwoodenboat: Thanks for sharing

cajun duckman: By the way what a fantastic video.I'm putting a twenty-five outboard on the one I want to build.Can I just use plans and just go from there to make a bigger hual. 

glenn acqua: i did not understand how you managed to cut the front part, when you stick the sides (the curved front). how did you come up with how much you will cut please? do you have more detailed plans please Thanks

Kris Smith: Recently, I built a flat bottomed boat and used this video as a main guide. Thanks for the simple instruction. Pleased that our boat had no leaks and performed great during the initial trial in a nearby lake. 

Rob Wright: Hey awesome video guys! I always wanted to try my hand at building my own boat & this video has me pumped up & ready to break out the tools! lol My dad built & used his own boats for crabbing & digging oysters, but unfortunately i never got the chance to help him build one. I think this video will help me get started! ;)

Harry Paul Garcia: Update: I about 50% complete. I am sealing all my edges, inside adn outside, with epoxy paste. Then I am putting 2 layers of fiberglass and epoxy on the outside. Then light sand and epoxy floor paint on the outside. Then my 4 1x1x8 of hardwood. Making good progress. I think it would float now. My grandson will be in the boat with me so I have to make real sure it dont sink. Testing in my pool, soon

cameron trathen: with this boat do you put fiber glass on the bottum ? and why is it not 4 feet wide ?

Justin Bob: Easy to follow, and very descriptive. 

BODGamekanaal: one looklike steve jobs

Harry Paul Garcia: Update: I am about 20% complete on my flat bottom boat. Pirogue However, I made some changes to the design due to size limitations. Mine is 8'long, 36" wide and 12" high. I am also sealing all the board connections with epoxy paste and covering the entire board with 2 layers of boat fiberglass. Then painting with epoxy paint.

Mikey Williams: What are the dimensions on all the wood? 

olegrayheadedfart: Looks HEAVY.

William Fossat: You didn't answer the questions about the width of the boat, why you trimmed it down to 42 instead of a full 48 inches. I also have a question about the three-degree pitch in the back. Why not continue that three degrees up the sides towards the front?--but if you do that, you'd need to cut angles on both the inside runners as well as the sides for the sides for the edges to meet, wouldn't you?--otherwise you're going to have gaps. Or does it not matter? 

Harry Paul Garcia: Does anyone have a complete list of wood that you need? 2 sheets of 5/8 marine plywood for the bottom, 6 - 1x2x12 (bottom and inside edge), 3 - 1x12x12 (sides and rear seat), 1 - 1/2x4x8 (inside bottom) Am I missing anything; besides skills?

Puertas y Decoracion: What??? were are the plans, the file is gone

Harold Cale: Why not just use the whole 48" wide? interesting..

Leon8744: what about the Plans!!! i cant download

Harry Paul Garcia: excellent job!

akhunter96: could you put a 9.9 johnson on that sucker?

Nicholas Almeida: Nice and easy!!

Harold Cale: Using a 36" ruler looking at it. Thought I'd like to try using 36" wide and only 8" long.. what do you think of my idea..? With 2 seats.. can you let me know what you think? Thank you Tim for all your hard work on KetKY and Kyafield.. watch both often..

Christian E. Wieser: The plans are gone. Pls upload them again. Thx

William Fossat: Why 42 inches and not a full 48?

eadams7451: how is this holding up with gorilla glue?

Jerry Maulden: Hey! I can also build a Birch Canoe What'd that flatboat weigh?

MinTrinidad: Can you take the out on the sea and face some waves? Maybe if you increase the length and hight by aout 10-20%

KYAfield: Perhaps, but the satisfaction of floating and fishing in your own hand-built boat is not to be overlooked.

pokemonthetrainer: @KYAfield could you put metal on the bottom and sides.... like jon boats?

ebaykid1978: Bah! Just buy yellow pine strips and regular old exterior plywood. No need for marine grade if you're just a weekend warrior and you use a good urethane enamel paint. Save some $ and if it rots in 15 years, just build another with the money you save.

bluemoondiadochi: he sound a bit like Snoop Dogg! i likes! + a really good vid, easy to watch, didnt notice the time that flew by!

Lonnie Hollifield: As always, great video!!

ticon60: sure. if u'll back is a different story :)
