Hi, I’m Kevin from the New Forest in the south of England U.K.
I’ve just started building the Carioca and would welcome any hints or tips with the build, or anyone who has built this particular boat.
I may well be on here often

Would love any construction photos if anyone has any.

Welcome, I hadn't heard of that boat plan and had to look it up. Looks like a nice deep V Cruiser. It is not cold molded, so any of the plywood builders (Zip, Malahini, Vera Cruise, etc...) should be able to help with general construction questions.
Nothing says poor craftsmanship like wrinkles in your duct tape!

Hallo Kevin !

I too have started building a carioca ! :D

There are very few pictures here.

How far are you with the construction ?

I'm still looking for wood.

Mahogany is hard to come by here. :(

Wich wood do you use ?

Do you already have pictures ?
