The build isn't the main draw for me....the main draw is that it is the only way I can afford a tender and it will be tailored to my boat and my needs. I have done alot of stuff to my boat that I could never have been able to afford to have someone else do for me. I have subsequently achieved exactly what I wanted, acquired skills and tools.
We live in a culture that is replacing self-sufficiency, ingenuity and creativity with a dependance on having other people do stuff for us band/or a reliance on what marketing says we need.
