951 days ago by Napaman | 18 comments »

Well…yesterday was a HUUUUUUUGE day in my Weekender Sailboat build…it was a day I had been thinking about for nearly two years (as far as a a place I wanted to get to). Yesterday we assembled the hull with all the parts I had made…some a long time ago… For those of you following my new little PDR Sailboat build the weekender is actually the boat I started with…got pretty far this past summer…and then BAM…life started again as summer ended and I di...

Well…I hope you weren’t all holding your breathes!!! After nearly 5 months of discovering, dreaming, hoping, worrying, and stressing—-I became a boat owner! Or at least a boat MATERIALS owner… However I cannot claim to be a boat builder…I ran into a snag because I could not find ONE SMALL part, lol…my rip guide for my circular saw…I thought my new one had one, but I realize that I did not get one with it…and then i tried to find another that...
