2. I bought plans for a Hitia 14, thinking that I would build one of those as practice before building a bigger boat. After getting some advice and thinking about it, I'm ready to build the bigger boat now.
3. The Tiki 30 plans are on their way. I'm figuring out materials, scouting building locations, and nursing a sore shoulder from my poor rowing technique.
