Dear Community

My Name is Tobias Steinmann. I live in Zürich, Switzerland and I feel a big desire of building a boat.

I am new to boatbuilding. I will start in April 2018. Until then I will buy the required material and keep reading about boatbuilding. I am not sure yet if I should build the 16' Aideen or the 16' Malahini. Because I am a bit scared of cutting a hole into the bottom of the boad I think it will be the Malahini, although I think inboard boats look much smoother. Are my fears of building an inboard-boat legitimate?

Thanks for your help in advance

Best regards

Tobi

Quicker build on the OB, but nicer ride with the inboard. Have no fear on the inboard fit out. Lots of them detailed on here.

Welcome to the forum. I say build the boat you really want but do get educated about the process. Sounds like you are doing your homework. One thing about an outboard is you'll have more interior space if that's an important consideration for you.

Dear Billy C, Dear Hoodman

Thanks for your fast answers to my questions. I really appreciate it.

Thanks Billy C for your advice concerning the bigger space with an outboard.

I have finally decided to build the Malahini.

Have a nice day!

Tobi
