That's actually a photo of the original builder, but she can be a wild ride!

My renovation was mostly cosmetic upgrade, 5 years old and minimal damage - the meranti was in great shape. I think I'd prefer a new build and hope to do one if I someday find myself with the available time. I've always been a diy'er, but there's going to be a learning curve.

Nah, if you've done a rebuild, you understand the steps in a new build.

It's like eating an elephant, you don't do it all at once!




I want to build a shorter "play" boat, but will probably do some models first.
