I haven’t been on here for a while now but I wanted you guys to know that soon I will be picking up where my father left off and continue wooden boat building so I carry on the family tradition that has handed down for generations now. If any of you live in mid southern louisiana and want to come be part of the show then message me and you can come and have fun or learn the craft.
My plans with this is to start a business because everyone that sees my canoe wants it and I said to myself “I need to build and stock a few of these to sell” Now I plan on starting out with some canoes and kayaks, anything that’s really affordable for anyone. Then I’m going to step it up a notch and start cold molding anything people want including small Yachts and create a website so anyone in the world can buy from me. All boats will be built on a commission basis and cash is king. They will pay for the materials before I start then they will pay the manufacturing fee to get it. I figured it would be dumb to just build something someone asks for because I could build it then they don’t want it and I’m out the money for the supplies, so that’s why it will be a commission basis. If you just spent a couple grand I think you’ll come back and pay the rest for something you want instead of just giving up a couple of grand for nothing.
Our world really is coming to a point that we have to make use of a skill to make your way. Hell a point may come where we have to go back to barter and trade because of how our financial system is.
Again if any of you live in Lafayette Louisiana or surrounding area, you are welcome to come visit or get on board the boat machine.
