Re: How long did it take to build your boat
I started building my 24' 6" plywood on timber frame yacht in 1986 and expected to take 4 years doing it. There are many things that can slow you down, lack of money, lack of time, skill level, non sympathetic partners/relationship breakdown, family priorities, illness etc etc.

I think it all comes down to time and money and how obsessed you can afford be.
In 1944 a children’s book club sent a volume about penguins to a 10-year-old girl, enclosing a card seeking her opinion.
She wrote, “This book gives me more information about penguins than I care to have.”
American diplomat Hugh Gibson called it the finest piece of literary criticism he had ever read.
