This one of the largest boats I have built,I worked in Oman as production manager in a boat yard,making fibreglass fishing boats, My boss threw me a challenge to make this “boat” It is just one foot short of a ship,by length,in their standards, hence it is the largest boat in the region. I started off building the plug with four carpenters, and the mould with the help of the Omani and expatriate worker in the yard. Making of the boat I was a bit cautious since it must be sea worthy, so more experience worker and supervisory staff were brought from Sri Lanka to make the boat. It bears my name.

this is way bigger than twenty three feet , maybe edit the title .

well done ,
you really have to work around boats ,
to understand the skills involved ,
and the learning that happens .

You boat looks about 23 meters! Thanks for the post and your pride must be glowing with the boat being named after you!

Tuanie, did you design the boat?...or was there a naval architect? Either way that is still a nice craft…the lines are sleek…I bet she cuts the water quite well…..personally, I am more in favor of a double ended vessel (even though they are usually narrower at the beam), especially when used near coastal or choppy waters, but I will leave the building to folks as gifted as yourself…well done!
