Welcome to Blog your Build, a feature we’ve added where you can get free plans for uploading pictures and text of your build to our site! How it works is simple, add yourself to the map, and then after you’ve purchased your instructional video email us and we will send you a coupon code you can use on the learning platform to download your plans. Once you start building upload a few pictures and a some text each time you build. You can share your blog with friends and family and we get to watch your build!  Win-win.

This offer applies retroactively to anyone who has already built a boat, if you have the pictures to upload a blog, we’ll give you another free set of plans or refund your initial purchase. Finally, if you are a former student, please consider adding yourself to the map!  It’s neat to see where all the boats are.
