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

Joe Cwik: This use to be how ALL boats were made. With a little innovation you could greatly reduce the weight by using different materials for the marine grade plywood - which by the way is EXPENSIVE stuff! :) Good video and clearly explained.

Patrick b: Can I use this boat plan with a few changes at the stern for a air boat? 

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.

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.

diger29: What is the weight of the boat?

SISSA MARQUES: It's a floating box !

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 

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

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!

MrTroutguy: about how much do you sell these for?

Mon S: Is that just a box?

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. 

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

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

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

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

Techpabiii: how long is it?

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

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

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! ;)

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.. . 

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

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. 

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

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

App PlayStore : thaiwoodenboat: Thanks for sharing

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..

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

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?

Justin Bob: Easy to follow, and very descriptive. 

BODGamekanaal: one looklike steve jobs

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? 

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

Harry Paul Garcia: excellent job!

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

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

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

eadams7451: how is this holding up with gorilla glue?

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

juvenal santos: gostaraia de saber qual tipo de madeira foi usada para fazer o barco

Nicholas Almeida: Nice and easy!!

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.
