Iowa TNT

Post by Dourds »

Hello all my name is Andy I am 31 and I and from the Des Moines Iowa area. I recently purchased the TNT plans and am very excited to get started. I was sitting the in hospital with my wife last week after we had our 4th child and thought hey I should build a boat haha. I would say I am an experienced wood worker but have never undertaken something think a boat so I would love some advice and help along with any comments.

Welcome aboard! Boat building is great fun for the whole family. Get them all involved and enjoy the boat. Ask away and post pictures. Plenty of help here.
