Hey everyone from the lone star state !

I have been dreaming of building a boat since nearly 2006, but never seem to have the 3 elements to build one (Time, Money, Space) :cry:

Well fast forward 13 years and I still don't have the 3 elements, but decided to try for it anyways :D !

I have always wanted to build the AMIGO, but unfortunately do not have near the space needed for that one, hope to one day as the "Big One" !

I am torn between the Sloops like Glen-l 14/15 or Cat-rig boat like the Glen-l 13 to get started on a budget of money, time and wife patience (any suggestions would be great) !

Thanks,

Jake

Thanks jenko - I have decided to try my hand at the Glen-L 13

Seems to be a good build for a beginner builder and sailor !

Welcome!

The money/time difference is fairly small between boats only a foot or so apart in size. So build the one you really want and that fits your family and local water.
