Re: Goat Island Skiff
I have the instructions and the plans, and they seem pretty complete to me but my only comparison is HH Paysons instant boat building with Dynamite P. I was looking at the car topper but it looked like more work and too small a craft for my needs. However, I have only started layout on the GIS and have yet to fit anything as my wood delivery has been delayed. If you can work with a chiltons manual then this isn't much different.

Reason: more thoughts to add
In fact, if you can saw a penciled line, apply glue, drive nails, and bring a modest measure of patience to the task, you can build and launch a smart and able craft in as few as 40 work hours. You need not be driven by lack of tools, materials, skills, or time to abandon in frustration a project you conceived in a spirit of pleasurable anticipation.
