Dory Kits and Plans - Timber Boatworks

Hey Wooden Boat People: 

I'm in the early stages of starting a side gig doing dory kits, some plans, and probably a few finished boats too. I'm focusing on a slightly smaller design than what is out there- it's basically a briggs style boat shrunk to 15'8" with a slightly different interior deck and hatch layout. It's a pretty sweet boat for rivers like the middle fork, main and lower main salmon, Deschutes, and Rogue, while still being big enough for Hells and GC trips. I'm planning to add a 15'8" double ender, a 14'6" design, and something around 12'6"

I'm not fully up and running yet, but starting to gauge interest and am cutting some "beta" kits while wrapping up the builder's manual. I made a website - and instagram : @timber_boatworks

Wayd- thanks for letting me know. It looks like something is wrong with the website as of this morning and I'm working to fix it. Hopefully it will be back up and running today.

I went to check out your website.  All the links are 404 not found.  I am in southern Oregon and just finished restoring an old Pritchett boat.  I would be curious for more info on your dory kit building stuff.
