Since there is no logical reason to build your own boat you have to be creative. Here's just a few that I came up with as I prepare to start the next build.
You know it's time to build anew when:
Epoxy stirrers and containers (popsicle sticks and yogurt cups) multiply and start taking over the shop
The list of to-dos on the last boat seem almost manageable
Your bank account has almost recovered from the last build
You spent the last summer sailing, not building, but thinking of the what to build next
So now that I have the reasons, the model built:
The plywood is being delivered tomorrow, so it's time to start the real build...whenever it warms up.
