Pitfalls and Learnings

Hi All,I am about to order plans for a Tiki 26 which I hope to start building in the next few months. I am wondering if there is anything I need to look out for when getting started or any building equipment that is "invaluable". I'm hoping to learn from others mistakes as much as I can. Looking forward to your replies. Cheers, Marty.See More
