If you haven't read it, you enjoy Sailing Small: Inspiration and Instruction for the Pocket Cruiser
by Stan Grayson. I checked it out of the library, and it was a positive but realistic look at really cruising with pocket cruisers. Each chapter was about a different boat, owner and actual cruises.
I don't recall if a Flicka was a focus of any of the chapters, but there was one concern with many small cruisers: tankage. A Flicka may be able to cross the Pacific, but with a 20 gallon water tank it might be tough.
Another point: building boats is expensive, and used Flickas are fairly common. I've seen the asking prices start around $18k. There a Flicka hull, cabin and rudder for sale
in Olympia, WA for $1350, but it's ferro-cement. If you are determined to build, you might put out the word for a Flicka hull in fiberglass, if that's your plan.
Jeff H's point about sailing a Flicka first is excellent advice. We see one being sailed regularly on the Columbia River, complete with an orange hull and tan-bark sails, but it needs wind and your needs should be pretty specific to be met by this special type of boat.
