I might choose to disagree ever so gently with tjk. I would build a smaller boat, probably in the twenty foot range. You can, with planning, still sail where you wish. Larger boats tend to take exponentially more time to build, with many never reaching completion. I'd be inclined to get my feet wet to the construction process, with all of the inevitable mistakes and correction, and then sailing that boat. If you enjoyed both experiences-then build a larger boat.

Cyber and assorted builders,

I gotta tell ya ... bright blue skies, gentle breeze, lake open, Perfect Paul calling for high near 65F, another beautiful high desert day! Capri on the trailer, waxed and ready to go, batteries charged, beer cold, steaks thawed, and new grill just waiting to fire up for the season! Taxes mailed and the Mate in a receptive mood too! Been dreamin' 'bout this all winter.

But ... gotta finish ballast molds and start melting 8,424lbs of wheel weights or I'll never get finished.

What to do? Sigh ...
