I do everything myself except canvas and sails. Had the bottom of the new (to me) boat painted after survey though...

I hope I'm smart enough to know when to get help when I need it.

This is the only way I can afford a boat of this size. I wonder if I would keep doing it myself if I could afford not to...

I'm getting old enough now that I'm pretty sore the next day after working on the boat, which always seems to involve awkward reaches in tight locations...

My present boat is 30'... Is it easier to work on larger ones?
