GCS,

Has Ian given you any indication of when he plans to begin manufacture of complete boats, for his $35k price tag? I think the 50 plans sold so far went to home builders. If you are waiting for one of them to come up for sale, you might be waiting a long time. And unless you plan to learn to do fiberglass/building, you're going to bust your $20k budget, and end up with something less than the 24-27 footer you have been asking about. And boats built by first-timers typically look like it, and have the resale to match. Or the pieces are all sold a year later, when they realize they lack both the skill, patience, and time to build.

Just be aware that most of the Farrier designs, aside from the Tramp/Eagle and the Corsairs are home built, and as such are going to have some quality control issues...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Dont know Ian, lol, so he hasnt told me anything i have just been reading up on it. I have Never worked with fiberglass Have done everything from sheet rock to roofs, and add-ons to remodeling of houses. How much skill is needed in order to effectively complete the kits in order to have a final product that doesnt look like junk?
I figure in 2-4 years i can save another 10k. (maybe learn to work fiberglass as well) My son is almost 6mo. old now and in truth i can wait till he is 4 or so to get my "dream boat" I am content with something much smaller now, but i am tired of the sunfish. lol. Definitely want either a 18-20' catamaran, or some small monohull that can be launched off texas beachfront, hehe i know the trimarans i am looking at need boatramps, but if i am going smaller/less might as well get convienience at the same time. Oh and i want more than just the mainsail, lol.
So now i am wondering if i can get away with spending 2k on something, earn interest and add to the rest, and have 25-30k in 4 years to spend.

If your interested in building a small boat, there are lots of easy plans out there. Also, buying a home built boat is a bit more work, but you can get a much better built boat for a lot less money. The home builder dosn't skip near as often as production builders. James Wharram has a lot of designs that can be built in a reasonable amount of time, the designs are pretty strait forward. Working with fiberglass is really similar to working with 20 minute drywall mud. Mix only what you need, work quick, keep it smooth or sand like a mother. You probaly have all the tools needed. Thomas Forth Jones has plans for a 27' trimaran in " Boats To Go, 24 easy to build boats that go fast with low power." Harold Payson has put out a couple of books, the best is " Building the new instant boat " it has a few good designs in it. Wharrams tiki series, and Paysons instant boat series use a stich and glue technique that is really quick. It has been made famous by the six hour canoe. A canoe that can be built and ready to paddle in as little as six hours.

The sad part is that the book is right beside me. I wanted to make sure I got the title right.
