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.
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 😜
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.
