New from Birmingham, AL

Just ordered plans for the Squirt. I'm super nervous as I'm a novice woodworker, but very excited to get started. Wouldn't have felt comfortable enough if it wasn't for browsing the forum and seeing all the support. I'm sure I'll need a lot!

Good boat to start with, and lots of help in your neck of the woods.

Welcome!

Hey Micah,

I live in Trussville and I am building the Zip. Let me know if you need anything. Also, Bill from Pelham above, has a ton of boat building knowledge.

Live in Crestwood/Avondale area. Have quite a small garage but large basement so maybe I can maneuver stuff around. Thanks guys, I'm sure I'll be asking tons of questions. Having some support nearby makes me even more excited to get started.

Now to clear out some space...

I grew up in Irondale. I'm very familiar the Crestwood/Avondale area. My first house was in Edgewood/Homewood. I know about the small garages.
