The timeline sounds about right. What is ironic is this statement at the very beginning:



It ain't always as promised eh?

So do you want to build a steel boat for the next X years? Or do you want to sail?
I started my steel boat April 12th 84, launched her May 12th 84, had her sailing by mid October 84,. and moved aboard.The second 36 I build was started February 4th 82 launched april 15th 82 , went for her first sail, May
24th 82 then headed for Mexico November the same year.
Takes a lot of focus , but can be done, and has been many times.
