Re: Lack of Confidence

One point that I meant to make earlier ... one of the benefits of an old boat, laden with projects, is that with each one that you conquer the boat becomes increasingly "yours." That is much more the case than if you bought a new or fully restored boat where everything is turn-key. Through blood, sweat, mistakes, and consternation ... those projects let you know every square inch intimately.
