    only trying to do what others websites have done for me, truly said i really enjoyed the experience and may repeat it again, i am happy with what i have achieved and have picked up many new skills along the way as i am to poor to pay anybody else to do stuff for me, its a bit frustrating doing it part time as it seems to take so long also my temp shed could have been a little larger as it ended up getting quite cramped (however it did save me a bit of money) if theres anything else youd like to know just ask. 1 piece of advice id offer though is to live where you build.

    I thought about building a 40' cat once . . .

    And I found out that at a couple grand + per running foot if you are a very good shopper and years of hard work - that a 28' cat would do quite nicely. If the boat is for your family of four and you do not want to sell the farm, think small, simple, light, more fun sooner than later. Ikarus designs are some good ones as well as Kurt Hughes - READ READ READ AND READ MORE. - IMHO
