Welcome Liam,

A few British builders on here but we seem to be a bit quiet on the posting front; get us some pics for inspiration! :lol:

Planning a whole fleet, but starting with a Zip...I think.

Thanks all, I should probably get round to making a thread with some pictures at some point, its going to be quite an intensive build as not only do i need to build the boat i also have to build myself a workshop to build it in - Should of picked a boat that fitted in the garage...That'll be the project once i've finished the frames :)

Hi from Kent UK Martin here from Yorkshire just starting out researching other builders in the UK. About to get started on a riviera in the next couple of months after getting the workshop prepared for the task.Looking forward getting started and I hope there are more builders out there to share information and advice. Best of luck with the build
