NOLAsailing is on a distinguished road
My guesstimate is $60K and 90 days of my labor will get me to a sailaway 36 foot aluminum catamaran with a 20 foot beam. I will cut the pieces and tack them together, leaving the seam welding to a pro. To have this boat built would be at least $250K. I can’t afford that. So on I go, doing my Don Quixote imitation. For me it works, even if it fails. I just love building floating things with one (or two or three) pointy ends and the ability to be my magic carpet……to Shangri-La!
Don't you know that boats are expensive?

(Good post - thanks)
