The Building Process

28 Aug

I started the planning process for building a boat over ten years ago.     I wanted to build a boat when I retired.    Now I am retired and I have the opportunity to follow my daydreams.

One of the joys and very time consuming aspects of boat building is in the planning stages.   What boat do you want to build?   Can you even build a boat?  How will it turn out?   Where do I get materials?   Where do I go for help when I find myself lost in the process?

32 years ago I build a Glen L 10 sailboat with my Dad’s help.    About the only thing I remember about the build is that we did it and it was a fun project.

      I plan on taking 100’s of photo’s throughout the construction. Only a fraction will end up on the blog, so if any detail seems to be missing let me know; I likely will have a photo.
