Wow what an awesome design! Do you have an estimate how much you will have into the boat itself not including power? What power are you going to put on the boat?

That's awesome. I hope to one day build a boat like that... space is an issue for me.

Currently building a 17' center console stitch and glue and it has consumed my whole garage.

Great work, I am a fan of that design just not yet ready to jump in with both feet. I suspect buckwilde will chime in soon with an uplifting comment seeing as he spends a lot of time over at B&B. Keep us up to date on the process please.

I know the feeling. That is how I got my user name.

But, hang in there. The epoxy industry has come out with a new variety of epoxy - edible epoxy!!! No more waste!

Peanut butter and banana flavors are now available.

I really like the lines too. I'm not sure what I'll have into it, I added it up (what I have spent) a while back and it was around 7k, can't remember if that had the paint system added in and I've bought another 1K worth of epoxy since. The shiny stuff is where a lot of unspecified $ will go. Haven't decided if I want teak covering boards yet. I would really like a teak toe rail but I'm not sure if I'm up for the maintenance. No idea what a t-top is going to cost, 5K? It'll end up with i-4 200's for power

I understand the space thing. I think it's a concern for most people. Do you have a project thread going somewhere?

Every moment you wait to start is a moment longer you have wait to enjoy it. Stitch and glue boats are much faster/easier to build and with a kit... wow. There was a guy on here or B and B who knocked one out, with a beautiful finish, in 5 or 6 months.

Wouldn't mind adding one to my stable at some point.

On to turning these parts into a 3D model. After getting the foundation level and square, I stood up the first and last permanent frame, then set the keel/stem assembly on. This is a bit different from some processes, but having the keel in place gives me some structure to stabilize the frames as they are erected without adding a bunch of temporary materials.
