I’ve bought MyBoatPlans and this is my honest review of it. I will be covering the pros and cons of this product.
MyBoatPlans is a collection of 518 boat plans, 45 videos on boat building, and hundreds of pages of illustrated guides on boat building. It provides a comprehensive package that contains all the plans and directions that will help you build any type of boat you would like to build.
Gone are the days when you have to spend thousands of dollars for a commercial small engine-operated boat. We are in the age of DIY and the boat-building industry has also recognized that. With MyBoatPlans, you get access to all types of boat plans typically available for a few hundred dollars for a fraction of the cost.
What You Get With The Package:
MyBoatPlans is an instantly downloadable product that you can look through right after sending in your payment. Aside from 518 specific plans for different types of boats, your purchase will also include 40+ videos and four bonuses with more than $1000 of value.
These bonuses include a feature-rich, multi-license software program to create any type of floatable object (including a boat, of course), rare books on boat-building that were previously only accessible to professional boat-builders, an in-depth review of 107 boat designs, and a commercial boat-builders handbook on safety regulations and consumer fact sheets.
What I Like About It:
– Huge Amount Of Diverse Boat Plans
Imagine choosing which among those 518 plans you should start with. There are so many projects to do, you will not run out of them. What is more, these projects are written in clear and understandable language, so they are perfect for beginners but also suitable for experienced builders because of the huge assortment of simple and less simple boat plans.
– Over 40 videos of step-by-step boat building
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 on 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 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 amount 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.
What I Didn’t Like:
The plans are all in downloadable electronic format, which is great if your main purpose is to stop using paper and save trees. But it can be quite a hassle if you want to have your plan sitting snugly next to you as you build your boat.
However, you have the option of getting the DVD set of MyBoatPlans.That way, you don’t have to download anything. But even the DVD format offered is not as convenient as a real paper plan.
Do I Recommend It?
Yes! Who cares if it is in electronic format anyway? You can always print the plans out when you need to. Plans4Boats is the only package that offers such a huge number of high-quality boat plans for DIYers and boat-builders.
It is a quality product that contains hundreds of boat plans. It has plans for boats, kayaks, and canoes that can be built in under 4 hours, up to elaborate plans for sailboats and yachts.
MyBoatPlans gets 2 thumbs up from me!
P.S. IMPORTANT NOTE: I’ve just been told, MyBoatPlans is currently running a huge promotion. Normally it sells for over $150, they have slashed that price down to $67…for now.
I’m told the price is going back up within a matter of days. So if you’re at all interested, now is the time to buy MyBoatPlans.
