So much fun building this boat, beautiful classic lines that draws crowds and constant comments at the boat launch and also on the water (literally). Highly recommended. The plans say intermediate skill level but I was first-time builder and built it with no problem. Get the two WBM issues Sept/Oct 2009 and Nov/Dec 2009, this boat is the cover story and the article walks thru the build step-by-step in detail, which was invaluable. Good Luck!
Now the fun begins
