The following links are manufacturers, dealers, and resources I typically use for my boat projects.

 

Many projects at Boat-Project.Com include links to suppliers or references. However, as is the internet, links may become invalid over time. I am maintaining this page as having the latest links, as its too hard to update the links in each individual project. I do not vouch or recommend any particular supplier, other than I have used them. They are for the most part - (relatively) inexpensive - or they offer sources of hard to find items.
