Yes I saw that Farrier for that great price
and it should be tempting to someone ... if the low price doesn't make everyone overly suspicious. It does not click a number of my checklist boxes. I am going center cockpit
to get separate cabins for me and the mate ... early bird and night owl. I want horizontal folding to be able to fold and motor
most easily. And keeping the folded beam road legal
at 8'6". To those goals I already have John Marples' DC-3 plans in hand. He does a great job of keeping his designs budgetable.
I look at a boat
like this ...
32 foot Irwin sailboat
... and I see $1250 of lead and $1000 of engine
to sell, and I get spars, electronics
, winches, ports
, whatever for my labor and minimal moving expense. But I need an idea of bow problematic it is to reuse spars which are the main motivation.
