I probably should of thought it through a little more over 40yrs ago before we were married.Did you consider a new wife before you made that promise?
Deciding to build another boat is easy for me. I’m retired and have lots of time and a good shop. For years, I’ve been fascinated with ‘spirit of tradition’ boats that combine the aesthetic of mid-century yachts with more modern design and materials. It occurred to me that balsa-cored boats that were self-composting could be ‘organ donors’ of usable components like keels and spars. The low cost of these components improves the odds of recovering costs or better.I admire your ability to separate these.
