This a job I did on contract, Loved teaching the guy’s how it’s done, I worked with only 3 carpenters and did it in 55 working days, The sad part is, I still got a large balance to paid for my work – It’s been a long wait!!! I have given up. I enjoyed doing it. Hope they will complete the job. I like to see it sail.

A nice build: It would be great for you to be paid and for the boat to take to the water.

That’s what deposits are for and scheduled payments just like when a contractor builds a custom house; so much is paid when each segemnt is completed and work dosen’t go forward until it is.

Why should the builder take it on the chin because someone “wants” and doesn’t pay???

Beautiful Hull, that looks like a deep harbor design and my guess is it would be very stable in heavy weather.
