Re: Frameless steel construction

Well, I plan on start sailing it as soon as I can, so as soon as the rig is made up and the motor is in...I won't wait until the interior is done, thats for sure. I don't plan on being too fussy on it, she will have the "work" boat look and not the all shiny one.

I'm the kind of guy that likes functionality over esthetics...

But yes, I know that I'll be quite long but hey, i'm still young.

I always enjoyed working on boats so the builing process it self should be fun, I'll start by doing all the detailing first( cleats, bollard, bow roller, anchor winch, tangs, and so on...)as a hobby, then when I'll start the hull (and the hull it self shouldn't take to long) I'll only have to weld all the detailing in place...

I'm not really committed to the built yet, I only invested in the plans for now, wich were cheap, so I could always change my mind....If the used brent boat were not that expensive, I would probably buy one instead but...

On the other hand, I really like the idea to build it my self so the bunks would be long enough, I'm 6'6"
