Well, you sure would know everything about how YOU did things, but that doesn't mean you did it well or correctly. You may end up finding out how much you didn't know about boat building and boat systems once you try and cruise
with it. That can be a very expensive lesson. Buying
a boat that is closer to the way more experienced professionals first put her together might save you a bunch of tuition at the school
of hard knocks.
I'm not making any comments about your personal abilities, just making a general observation.
