The Pros:

Below are some of the points I was really impressed with.

– A Huge Range of Plans To Choose From

They provide you with detailed plans and diagrams, complete with color pictures and examples of many types of boats. Sailboats, skiffs, canoes, kayaks, houseboats, paddle boats, yachts, catamarans, flat-bottom boats, dinghies and dories, to name a few. There are multiple plans available for each kind of boat, so you have some variety to choose from.

– The video section is comprehensive

The 45+ videos on boat building leave no stone unturned. It consists of the entire boat building process from conception to the final product. It is great for beginners who want an easy to follow video guide on boat construction. There are also videos of boat repair and boat design calculations which are great for professional builders

– Great bonuses included

The bonuses you get with this product are great. You get a FREE boat designing software, a book on boat construction tips and the boat-builders handbook which is huge in and of itself.

– Full-Color Pictures

I appreciated the number of full-color pictures and diagrams that are included in the manuals. I’m a very visual person, so it is easier for me to follow a picture or diagram instead of reading paragraphs.

– Money Back Policy

The 60-day money back guarantee is always appreciated. I like seeing a merchant who stands behind their product 100%. It puts the consumer at ease, knowing that they aren’t going to lose a cent if they choose to not use the system.

The Cons

– It takes a while to download

Due to the huge amount of content available, there is about 900 megabytes to download. This may take a while if you have a slow connection. However you can opt for the DVD edition in the members area so that solves the issue if you’re on a slow network

– Less than 20 mega yacht designs

I would like to see more mega yacht designs and plans. This would be great for professional boat builders like me who are interested in mega yacht designs.

Conclusion

MyBoatPlans is a great collection any way you look at it. It is suitable for beginners as well as seasoned builders alike. It offers great value for money considering the one-time price you pay for such an extensive system…
