I looked at many (on the net) but tracked any! I am at the beginning of process and still have to decide wich cat, according to my budget, can be the one.
About the Kelsall in particular, i liked the salon and the shape of the boat; berths and generally hulls not so much. What i also thought is the fact that for that price i can get many production cats but surely a bit older.

I think SCRUMBLE touched an interesting point: insurance. Is for insurance companies a "problem" the amateur building? If they ask for more infos/documentation or make special surveys, the answer might be there.
I anyway agree that much depends on who is the amateur builder and who's the "professional".

Thank you all for your replies, go on reading.
