How much time and effort do you want to put into it? y stepdad has been working on a boat for over 30 yrs, thought it would finally get into the water this year.......but, alas, it is not to be, due to being in his mid 80's, 2nd hip surgery in a year, along with a few other setbacks. I truly hope we get to see him sailing his boat at some point in time.

But I have to admit, building boats are fun from experience, just add about double the actual time you think it will take. If done right, you have something like Giulletta from the crazy pourtegues's point of view, altho his was very $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$.

Is it worth it? Only you can answer that!

Altho, talking to a place that can make a keel is a good start, then how much it would cost to finish the interior, buy the mast, rigging etc if it does not have anything etc.
