Re: Wish I Had The Boat Builder/Dealer Do It!
RE: attaching the deck before building the interior
That's an interesting point. I would think that would make it more difficult to build but you are certainly guaranteed that everything will fit through the companionway.
I'm leaning towards an aluminum hull with variable draft after doing a ton of reading. It seems the negativity regarding corrosion is greatly misplaced if the boat is properly cared for. Also, I would likely avoid paint between the waterline and deck. It seems to be a real PITA as well.
In any event, I would like to intimately follow the boat's build.
