Re: Frameless steel construction
I was in your shoes 30 years ago but I was looking at the Roberts design steel boots. After owning several day sailors I bought my current fiberglass 34 footer. I would still like to one day build a custom boat maybe out of steel, but because of time and finaces I cannot see that happening.
If you go your stated route, my suggestion would be stay single, do not buy a fixer upper house- you will have enough to do building the boat, and stay away from women while you are building your boat.
