    Even folks who aren't boat builders! Welcome & I too thank you for sharing.

    I've been rebuilding a boat for what feels like my whole life - so I get it.

    Very good Denis!

    Looking good, speed of building is all relative. Where do you plan on sailing her?

    For those who are wondering about ballast, the intention is that this boat will often be built in small spaces, in situations where a big melt and casting of a lead ballast keel would not be possible, so the plans show the spaces in that built up keel being filled with small ingots set in cement plaster. She does depend upon her stores and internals to set her down on her lines, but it all works, the several sailing so far are doing well for their owners.
