IMP / Peter Carras / peter@petercarras.com / 7-10-99: Forms 1 & 2, stem, and most of transom completed. Ready to install chine. Purchased 6mm okoume, having lap joined to 12′. 7-19-99: Battens glued and screwed, side and bottom planking and skeg installed. Boat turned over and seats and railings being installed. 8-5-99: Construction complete, ready to fiberglass. Rails were hard to bend, but had success. 9-7-99: Had the launch in front of the whole neighborhood. It was a wonderful experience for me and my 9 year old son. 4-9-03: We completed the IMP and it was a tremendous success, because it was a learning experience for my 12 year old son.(Customer Photos)

IMP / Mitch Rohrbach / JULIEMITCHR@peoplepc.com / 10-13-03: Building base member for Stem and Forms 1 and 2. 10-25-03: Chine Logs, Battens, Sheers and Keel ripped to size. Sheers rounded for pleasing appearance. Slight radius to top edges of Battens and Keel except where notched into Transom. Knee, Stem and Transom cut. Preparing to notch Transom Frame. Note: Cut the sides of the Transom and Frames to 5 degrees to accommodate the side plank angle and reduce fairing. Have to prepare all parts prior to lying the building base on the floor, work shop too small to do both. Waiting for my Poxy-Grip so I may join the Stem, Knee and Transom Frame. First boat, can’t have ANY mistakes, that wood is FAR too expensive. 12-29-03: My IMP is coming along nicely. Just attached the inner shears and continue to work on fairing them for a nice appearance. IMP Rowboat, Mitch Rohrbach, 1-2-04: Project complete!! Had great fun. Four months building time. Bright yellow hull, red stripe down the sides. Light blue non skid deck. Natural Shears and seats. Used all 100% Acrylic latex. LOOKS GREAT! $620 total cost. Will send pictures eventually. Thanks for the great plan and your assistance.

IMP / Shane Smith / Quesnel, British Columbia, Canada / gregoryshane@shaw.ca / 4-11-05: I am at least half way through the building process, by my estimation. Side planking has been glued to the stem, chine logs, and transom, the frames are faired, and I am nearly ready to glue the bottom on the hull. It is starting to take shape and with any luck I can flip the hull and begin (the fun stuff) work on the inside. I built the IMP to be a fly fishing boat for the small freshwater lakes in the interior of British Columbia. It will be used as a cartopper to access 4×4 lakes, and will hopefully provide a stable fly fishing platform from which to spend long days fishing from. I am a 200+ pounder and I needed a larger boat than my previous 8-footer. This is the second boat that I have built. It has been constructed of Brazillian mahogany marine plywood, Douglas-fir for the frame, and floor battens of fir and spruce. The entire boat is covered in epoxy, and I chose to cover the outside of the hull in 2oz. kevlar cloth. I intend to put UHMW rub strakes on the bottom of the hull to protect against abrasion when the boat is pulled ashore.

IMP / Glenn and Austin Northcott / Bethlehem, PA / glennnorthcott@hotmail.com / 10-28-03: After receiving the plans, we were both very excited to get started on our IMP. So, along with my son Austin (age 7) we began to build the forms last night and are ready to get started ASAP on more. I can already tell it is going to be a great experience. Cost of plans $36. Cost of Materials… $200. Seven year old saying “Thanks for doing this with me Dad” every five minutes… PRICELESS!

IMP / Tom Schultz / Deep River, CT / SchultzieTC@comcast.net / 1-18-06: My wife bought me the plans and I have studied them from top to bottom, and I feel very confident that this will be a great project. I have not made my first cut, but I have all the lumber on order and it should be arriving mid next week. I also purchased the fastener kit, and poxy grip from Glen-L. I can’t wait to get started.

ISLANDER / John Shannon / catboat@agt.net / 7-1-98: All frames and stem constructed and erected. Working on transom and harpins. 11-1-98: Transom, harpins complete, all set up. 5-8-99: Keel completed and in place. Chines installed. 6-20-99: All side and bottom battens in place. Fairing is all done (I hope). Planking starts today. 7-16-00: First layer of plywood on bottom and sides. Planking will be finished by the end of August and I hope to turn over the hull later this fall. 8-7-00: With one year to go before launch, all the decks are teaked, I am at present, on the wood laith, turning the rail stanchions, to try and complete the exterior work this year, before winter, when I can concerntrate on the interior work. The engine is in place, and ready to marinise, all the cabin lighting is wired, I have decided to have solid fual heating, with radiators, so we can use the boat all year round. She is looking very good at the moment.

ISLANDER / Stefan Joerg / Worms, Germany / Stefanjoerg@excite.it / 10-19-02: I just began the project.

ISLANDER / Stephen Langston / Scotland / Stephen@pictel.co.uk / 4-16-06: I started the Islander just under a year ago and managed to complete the frames in about two weeks. After six months off (due to heavey work schedule and bad weather) I have just started work again. Today I joined together the Keel and am now waiting for supplies to make the harpins etc. You can see my efforts at http://www.pictel.co.uk/boat.htm
