    Hi Colo, This question has been asked previously on this forum. Unless you have advanced skills and are extremely determined for a first timer you will probably fail with a first build at 18-20 ft. I suggest that you aim a bit smaller.
    This boat which is an excellent but easy to build cat, at 14.5 ft. is plenty to attempt the first time. It will sail well with one or two people, and cheap plans are available. Go to this link.
