    I have recently been intrested in building a large preformance cruiser. I have been sailing my whole life, but I have only minor experience with repairs and modifications. The extent of which is installing a wheelpiliot, and small general wood working. However I do have a good bit of experiecne with "system"(eletrical, water, motor, septic). I have found plans that I like, .

    I have never built a boat before let alone anything bigger than a small shack for storage. First is it possible for me and two friends with equal knowledge to build a boat of this magnitude? How much time and money should I expect to put into a build of this sort of project?

    In addition is this a well designed boat? I am looking for somthing comfortable yet fast.

    I orginaly posted this in the sailboat forum, but another member sugested to repost it here.

    Any and all help is appreciated

    Thx- Alex
