Today I would like to share with you all how you can pick the right wooden boat plans to begin building a boat of your dreams.

Making Accent Stripes On Your Wooden Boat

 

Making Accent Stripes On Your Wooden Boat

Recently I found a great free accent stripes plan online that shows how to make accent stripes on your wooden boat, wooden paddle or any special custom made boat part that needs to look great Making accent stripes is a little more complicated than making a single strip that contrasts with the basic hull color. It takes some thought and a little extra time to spend to make it look good.  The free plan details making a three part stripe – that is, making three individual strips, that when mounted on the hull, form the perfect finished stripe. The technique can be used to make just about any sort of accent, from simple two or three lines to complex repeating patterns.
