Why were you going to scrap it?


Not to be a jerk, but I tell you the answer to that question is best found and understood only through experience. I can't think of anyone who has scrapped a boat build who actually listened to, and understood the reasons, prior to starting his build.

I'm 70 years old, and I think I've always understood the reasons, but still, I have scrapped two builds over the years. One I cut up and fed to my wood stove, the other I smashed to smithereens and fed to a dumpster.

My Standard build took two and a half years part time with lots of cold weather breaks and vacations. My Widebody build took three years part time with the same frequent breaks.

I doubt I'll ever build another boat - maybe a remote chance I'd build skin on frame.

Obsessed with salt spray, possessed by the urge to go rain or shine.

I guess I like being involved. My wife told me I can't serve on any more boards, so this must have become an outlet for that excess energy. Didn't think I was so obsessed 😜

Obsessed or possessed?   ::) ???

It took me 2 long Alaskan winters to get it on the water.  Finished, who can say?

I spent a few days with Ed in Perth. He has a monster project going on over there. I think he's back on track for getting his completed. Can't wait to see it. I will be asking a lot of questions along the way and hopefully it will only be 12-18 months. I'm getting a head start with a kit.

Been almost five years. Just getting to putting the sides on now.  Life is full of obstacles & trials. Almost took a sawzall to the whole thing one time - wife talked me down. I'm past that now. When it gets done, it gets done. But it will get done.
Why were you going to scrap it? I'm just asking because I'm getting ready to start a GA BUILD  and would like any insights I can gain.
