Roberts kit boats experience?

Hi everyone i am looking at a TY 43 Roberts in steel kit form i have suitably qualified friends and a reasonable level of experience to be confident of doing the build. What i would like to find out if there is anyone on the forum who has done or knows of anyone who has done one of the Roberts kits in steel and their experience not only with the quality of the material but also in the final end result is it what they expected and if the boat performs to expectations.

I just finished building that model, and just launched in August. Check out my blog. Where are you located? You can email me for more info or continue discussion on this forum.

Cheers
