If you are serious, have the funds required and skills necessary, ok but Iím not going to deal with dreamers or bargain hunters. To eliminate frivolity, I will charge for pictures, or to take you out to see the boat
. Donít waste my time and I wonít waste yours. It took years to build this boat and will take money
and time to finish it, but I built it for myself and it reflects a lot of professional experience.
