All I can say is...WOW! What a great set of pictures! This should inspire others to do as you have. For many years I dreamed of building my own sailboat, and I spent countless hours studying. After much soul searching, I decided it was simply too much for me to tackle. The last thing I wanted to do was to have a project of mine join the legions of unfinished boats rotting away on weed-filled back lots. Sometimes I still permit myself a few idle moments of dreaming. Your set of photos takes me there yet again.
I now have a production sailboat and enjoy it, but would still love to have something built with my own hands. Cheers! I'll look forward to reading more about your boat.
