Hi Folks
I bought my plans for the Belle Isle 23 three years ago. I bought all the wood for the frames at the time to make a start. The other project got in the way. Now I am building in earnest. All the frames are complete. I really enjoy looking at the pic's other builders have posted. ill do the same as I progress.

Welcome aboard and do post many pics and progress reports. That wood should be well seasoned by now. :lol:

I've mixed feelings about this post - Initially I felt better about having my plans for a year without a start... then I thought "What if I don't start for another 22 years! :lol: "

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

"Just when you think you've made something idiot-proof, someone builds a better idiot!"
