View Full Version : How far have you got

How far have you got, when you've just turned the hull on a runabout?
I mean, to me never having built a boat before it seems like most of the real hard work is out of the way?
But then, Im told that the hull is only 10% of the job, can this be right.
You guys out there whom have already been through the whole prosess, must be able to hazzard a guess.

On a wooden boat, when you are out on the bay on a beautiful spring morning, the wind blowing through your hair and the smell of the salt air in your nostrils.... on your boat's maiden voyage....

You're about half done ;)

Ten percent is a little low but half? Don't get discouraged Grasshopper. Attach one piece at a time, a little every day or so, and you'll finish. Proudly!

Well, when I did mine, I found that work slowed to a crawl because the rest was so time-consuming and meticulous. I'd saw work-wise, 50%, time-wise, 25% or so.
