Really is a great little piece.. beautiful boat. Would have liked to see more of the interior, from what we did see it looks like nice work....

Re: "Bob, it's finished."

As the Smakster says, awesome. I do hope he does sail her or will he simply start again and build another one ? Who knows, but an amazing feat. From tree to the end. Shame about the foot.

He built her and she took his foot! That's gratitude....

Re: "Bob, it's finished."

Just a beautiful boat....What is AMAZING is, that he did finish the yacht. There are thousands.. (maybe millions?) of project boats started, half finished.. built and never fitted out, left to rot...

Terrific story. What a wonderful example he makes for his kids/grandkids and all.

Re: "Bob, it's finished."

Pretty boat and a great story that he finished the build and got to sail her. How crazy after all that to lose his foot once she was in the water.
