Where do I begin? In 2010 my wife and I were just getting started building the home we now reside in, when I came across a website detailing the adventures of the S/V Lightwave and crew. I somehow got completely sidetracked, and geeked out over the possibility of a DIY boat
build and sailing the world. I still haven't been able to shake that bug. It took two years to complete our humble abode, and funny
enough I didn't seem to learn anything from the punishment of an owner build. Now that we are nice and settled in I'm starting to feel a little stagnant, and despite living smack dab in the middle of the country with no big water
close to us, I think I'm ready to start my new build. Being a bit of a Clark Griswold, I don't really know how to do anything small. My dream boat
is a 12m sailing cat. Im looking forward to learning
gobs of stuff from this awesome community, and welcome anyone who would like to contribute to my sailing/building/cruising education, or any naysayers, as I feed and thrive off of anyone who tells me that I can't do something. Bring it on
and fair winds friends.
