Starting A Proper Boat Build | Building Temptress Ep1

I am starting a full size Temptress boat build!!! Let’s take a look at the shape of things to come, sort out some space and get the first timber delivery in!

– Project sponsors –
Firstly I want to say a huge thank you to the following sponsors that are helping to reduce the materials cost for me on this build in order to help me get things moving! Current project sponsors are:


West System

– Ways that you can support –
Getting this project pushed to completion will be difficult I am sure, but with the support of you guys I am confident I can make that happen 🙂

I hugely appreciate any support that you are able to offer in order to make this possible and will look to try and return that to you wherever possible. Be that through making great videos, inspiring, entertaining or teaching you something along the way. Hey, maybe even all of the above!

If you would like to support this project and help me make it happen then here are a handful of ways that you can do just that…

– Just watching the videos –
By simply watching the videos that helps them to do well, watching all the way to the end, dropping a comment and a like also helps to tell YouTube that they are worth showing to others 🙂

– Support the channel and project on Patreon –
On for a monthly pledge of your choosing you can gain early access to these videos, get some additional behind the scenes ones and also get some exclusive merch and website discounts which are tier dependent.

– Buy yourself some Temptress merch –
On you can get some Temptress shirts and hoodies that kick back a small payment to me which can go towards the project.

– Buy yourself a set of Temptress model or full size plans –
If you’d like to build your own boat either model or full size, plans are available to buy on my website here

– About the Project –
Temptress is an all new modern wooden 24′ runabout designed and kitted to utilise the latest in CNC cutting technology and modern epoxy wooden boat building. In this series I am aiming to showcase the systems that I have implemented within this design and throughout my other boat plans.

The boat and some of the other ones in my catalogue are designed by Michel Berryer
