Go for it. It's very cathartic.

No crush. I figure that building a boat is better use for your energy then searching the sky for black helicopters and scouring Youtube for four -year- old Ron Paul debates.

Brenda, please keep us updated with your progress. I tried building a cold molded dinghy when I was much younger but never completed it. I'll be interested in learning more about the stitch and glue process. At first glance, it looks like a very practical way of building a small boat.
Good luck with the project.

I have been using stitch and glue( weld ) techniques for building steel sailboats , up to 47 feet. We call it origami boat building. The quickest and most practical way to get a hull together. It's as simple as it looks.

Brenda, CLC is one, maybe even the best choice! Here's a pic of a Cape Charles 18 that my son and I built with along with a 17. (older design from CLC)
This how she looked after being neglected and outdoors for about 4 years. Sold it to a boy scout troop leader.


The were both basically built in one weekend! Epoxy coating, fitting out and painting of course took more time then the actual build.

I built a Pygmy Coho four years ago. They have a nice lineup of models including a canoe and a wherry. The kit was A1 and the instructions left no questions. Their estimate was pretty close, I think it was about 70 hours to splashdown. Pygmy Boat Kits

I built a kayak with my Dad, a sailing dinghy and a rowboat on my own. The first two were ply on frame, the last pine. Launching and sailing that dinghy was one of the best days of my life. You'll love doing this, please keep us posted.
