My fathers first boat was a B-31, I beleive most of them were finished by the owners not the yard. This practice was very common in Scandinavia in the 70''s & 80''s. Being our families first boat, we loved it, spent 4 to 5 weeks straight with 4 people every summer. Just keep in mind the build and install quality can be shoddy. With a LYS 1.07 which would equate to a 170 Phrf. Pretty median in speed.
