    A bump for this while I wait for sailing season, 2021... Well worth a read. Another read.

    You don't have to be prepared as long as you're willing to suffer the consequences.

    Maybe we can talk Alex into doing a redux with his new boat

    I'm all for it. When are you launching, Alex? March?

    I wish.

    I don't have any hard deadlines to push me, such as needing to have a boat ready for a trip up the Inside Passage, like I did when building Fire-Drake. At my current building pace, it won't likely be launched this summer.

    You do know it took me 7 years to build my Alaska, right?

    Well, probably about 14 months of part-time work spread out over 7 years, 2 of which were years in which I was in Kuwait, and Idaho, and the boat was in Wisconsin.

    Sometimes I open a thread without looking at when it was started, and I'll come across a comment by Peter Sibley.

    Yep. That's been happening to me a lot the past few days, while I've been digging out some of my favorite old small boat cruising threads here.

    I hear ya.

    It took me 5 years to build my Alaska. A major career move in the middle of it had a lot to do with it.
