Boat Building Projects Underway

Gents the idea of this thread is to have a one stop place where you can look for builds that are underway AT PRESENT. You dont have to be the most active builder but at least share what you got. Maybe this will motivate some folks

Who is doing what

Big and small - all welcome, as long as you are at it

Here is a start of the sites that i enjoy and have read, and mine, and new stuff

Manie,

The little tri project pages are still there if anyone is interested -
http://www.faze.co.za/Little%20Tri/Little%20Tri.html

I don't have the little tri (called Dugout) any more. Someone came here and said he wants it. It frees some space for the cat.

Well since you ask..

Here's mine : http://www.leftcoast.biz/iWeb/Left_C...t_tooling.html

Tooling up the Left Coast Dart.


Here's a picture as a teaser.

And yes I love boat refit & building logs with pix. One of my favorite pastimes is reading them.

P.S. The "No Tomorrows" link on my sig. is a refit log as well.

Here's one of my favorites : http://www.thebigsailboatproject.com/

I've been following these ladies build this machine from from the time it was a pile of sheet metal out in the woods. Took years but they finally finished it and went cruising this last summer. (Sorry, did I ruin the ending?)
