Those boats in Sulawesi are beauties, that's where I got the boating
bug, one look and I said to myself " I could be happy living on a boat
like that cruising Indonesia
." We are now in Guatemala
, and yes, happy.
Problem is, boats like that are a bitch to keep up, especially in the tropics. Given the number of steel fishing
boats available for a song on both coasts of the USA, you're better off going with steel
By the time they finish up the interior
and mechanics, your costs will be up around750k. Rebuilt my shrimp boat in Louisiana for a third of that.
But if you have a design in mind and have to have it in wood, go to Sulawesi.
I would go there for my next haircut.
