That would be a nice boat if she is built well.

I've been to "live" auctions where the price starts out and goes down with no bids. Then the bidding starts and the price goes up way past the start before ending. I don't know if that sort of bidding can occur on eBay except when a seller keeps reposting after failed auctions.

Maybe she'll do well.

Looks well done so far. Offers are invited.

is it normal to embed a layer of lead ballast in the bottom? I've never seen that method before.

Man...if I didn't need a decent car, carpet in the house, new wiring, and a half dozen other expensive things I might just have had a home for it. Not very far from me either.

Not me. I was in Hackensack in my youth but it's a long way from me now, and I'm not thrilled by plywood.

Why would he spend $1200 (rather a lot IMHO, but then I never liked the looks of them) on plans and then use ACX fir ply?
Perhaps no one wants to gamble on how well the work was done so far.
