The start (actual building time so far 143,5 h)

I finally dare to go public with my build. I have absolutely no experience in boat building so I was not sure how far I will get. Now after 9 month I am confident enough that I will finish it.

I was surprised to find out that the main problem so far is to free some time for the build. The expected technical problems for me as a total greenhorn proved to be manageable so far.

Yesterday I just finished the fillets and keel glassing of the first hull. Now I face another delay, I have to move to another building place. But this has also a good point: it is big enough for the big one!

It's been almost 10 years for me and i am JUST getting confident i will launch.(something at least)

it's the periods of time when  i couldn't even look at the boat for months at a time that i start to panic.  But it always comes back.
