The boat looks great! 24x30 is a good size for a shop. I had 24x24 in NC and it was enough for the boat plus other projects. If you can make your door slightly higher than the standard 7' you'll be doing yourself a favor.

Just my input here; Both times I built my own garage/workshop, I clad two trusses both sides with 1/2 " plywood. This allowed me to fasten steel plates to them with eyes protruding through the ceiling. (I always built my own trusses!) Pick your locations carefully for this and you will use the eyes many times during your build. They will support the boat . ( I use 4 1/2 ton chain hoists.)

Hey Kelly - All good down here. Was really just a rain event in here in Panama City with a nice breeze. You all probably got more than we did.

Thanks for checking on us!
Happy Boating,
Tracy
