Free labor for sure but the end result is pretty satisfying. Not sure I'd do it again. But it does call me from time to time. I think it's my wife that would not allow it as it overwhelms your time. It takes about a year working on it a LOT.At 50 cents an hour for your time, boat building has to be a labor of love...always wanted to build one but, just couldn't justify the time and labor involved...dang....
He is not dead.Crystal Meth finally got him fired and although I don't know how he died Meth surely had something to do with it. Good riddance to that dirty BP agent.
Please do share some pics ! I'd love to capture the history (again) since I've lost most every photo I used to have.Chris sold it to Ron "Calico". Ron took it to baja and that was the last I heard of it.
It was wet when the wind came up but the softest 18' I've ever been on. Felt like a cork under the foot as it absorbed all of the nastyness tossed at it.
I sold it for a 23' Parker then 27' Worldcat then 31' Innovator and now a 34' Sea Vee and we just picked up a 35' Cabo. I'm done for a while on boats...
Chris caught some fish on it. I have a ton of pics of the rebuild after I got it from you. I don't miss sanding and refinishing those rails every season.
