A great looking boat, but as someone who took on a very similar project with very similar problems, then ended up abandoning it because it was just overwhelming, it's going to be a long, hard haul.
However, I'm sure that if you choose to go for it, you'll get plenty of good help and support from all on this forum!

"And look at Elias Wonder. Yeah, take a gander at that buzzard. Forty years ago he was happy, generous, charitable, tall, dark and handsome. Then he took up the fly rod. Now consider him. Uglier than fresh road kill. Evil-eyed, cantankerous, sullen, mean. An anti-social misfit that causes a groundswell of spleen wherever he goes."
