In WB No. 229, Geoff Kerr presented the first part of a two-part article on building the Kaholo Standup Paddleboard from Chesapeake Light Craft. His manuscript included an impressively detailed list of tools and supplies that we simply couldn’t fit onto our pages, what with all of the detailed drawings and step-by-step images we included for the project.
After selecting the plans for your first boat and finding a suitable location for a shop, it’s time to round up the tools to build it. No question about it — having the right tool for the right job can make a project flow easily and expeditiously. Most people contemplating building a boat will probably already have some basic household tools, and some of these will be useful in boatbuilding.
