I started construction of this boat back in 1989 as a part time ,
after work project . It was to become an obsessive passion for
two years and consumed seventeen hundred hours of my spare time . I
had initially built the boat on spec with the intention of selling it
. As things turned out I finished it in 1991 just as the economy had
imploded and the market for wooden boats had evaporated . I still own
the boat today , and it is no longer for sale , but I would build
another one if commissioned to do so .
