Building the Dream

G'day all
I am building a wharram tiki 26 at the moment and hope to be sailing in the not too distant future.i have always dreamed of building my own boat,not being filthy rich i had to go for a simple design and one that was relatively inexpensive to build.i am not a craftsman by no means but have found my confidence and can do- attitude go up a level since starting the build.i have no idea where this little boat will take me one day but coconuts and fishing may feature somewhere.
cheers paul.

Re: Building the Dream

Welcome to CF.
Most people build 1 boat as a first try, you jumped right in with 2,
