My dad had his boat at Monroe from 1977 to 1979 and at Burnham until 1984. I'm pretty sure he was paying about $1,300 for the slip in Burnham back then. He had to pull a lot of strings and still had to wait two years to make the move from Monroe to Burnham.

Happy to see Chicagoans!

JulieMor Welcome Mark! From one fellow Chicagoan to another.

Now are you going to sail that boat in the Mac?

tomperanteau Thanks for your work, and that does suck.

Like Wandering says, are there other materials that you could work with?

Sadly, after 2 projects, I have become 'sensitized' to epoxy resin and can't work much with it anymore without serious allergic skin and mucous membrane reactions--even with a mask.
That is tough, but there are other glues and construction methods.

SHNOOL no doubt, that is some nice work! Hats off to you! and welcome.

tomperanteau Wow! If that is your first boat, I can't wait to see your second!

Maybe you can build one for me??

Great work, and please, take lots of pictures!

WanderingStar That's amazing. Building and sailing your own boat is truly a rare thrill.
