where are you located? Or do you think about a discussion group to focus the effort?
I have looked at the websites you named. Sea Island Boatworks was new for me. Very fine pics about the building steps for Moondance and Palmetto Breeze. They give a good impression of what is awaiting someone.
I discussed with Kurt about support during the start phase, and I think for newbies it is a must, to get help of someone who is familiar with CM method.
Our infrastructure is very fine, we even haven't one. But it needs around 4 weeks to install a practicable boatyard.
For the moment we have decide to move the building date to autumn 2008. The preliminaries needs to much time. It makes no sense for us to finish a boat in winter, when our season starts in May.
So we have enough time to learn more about CM or CC, may train on a smaller project.
