HouseBoat 20

by Hemppa Katajamäki
(Nokia, Finland)

This is my firs boat and I built it from plans that I ordered trough internet.

It took two and half years to build because its too cold during the winter time to build here.

Boat was easy and fun to make but with this knowledge that I have now, I would build more seaworthy hull.

I have made two videos of my project on youtube, unfortunetly the texts are in finnish but you will get the pictures.

Great build videos of the bateau.com HB20.

I'm considering building it myself, but have found very little about the boat or the build sequence.

It is quite different from the original plywood-on-frame boat featured in March 1973 Mechanix Illustrated magazine
