Re: Building my MT 26 folding tri

Good for you, I'll definately be following your progress. Wish I was close by, I would love to see the progress. Look forward to building my own Tristar 36 soon. Glad to see the old designs still have a following. Steve

Re: Building my MT 26 folding tri

Nice shop space. For what that cost you could afford to buy a few production tri's, and have more time on the water. Just sayin'.

BTW I'm jealous. If I had a space like that I'd have a number of projects on my list. Have wanted to build a boat for years, on and off.

Yeeeaahhh!!--but it ain't the same--is it?

Minister of Finance (wife) tell me the same thing every project.

Will follow this with interest--give Knottybouz some competition.

The shop only cost me $50.00 a month to cover heat & power. I didn't find a production tri that would work for us. Besides, I love boat building.
The boss [wife] is behind this 100%, can't do better than that...Michael..

Re: Building my MT 26 folding tri

Looking great.

I always wanted to build a multihull.

Working on a building project in a proper workshop is great. Keep up the high quality work. I look forward to seeing the project as it progresses.
