Hello,

Thanks for the kind words. I'm grateful to find a community of folks who understands the peculiar affliction of boatbuilding. I like to think of the project as therapy; my wife says I must need lots of it!


Regards,

Steve Hansen

Greetings All. My name is Ben. I am a retired carpenter. I am interested in a small motorsailer like the Kodiak. A bluewater boat. I would prefer building in wood. My late father started a boat in steel but as he as a carpenter his metal work skills were low and he could not find dependable help after having a stroke. He gave up, cut the frame apart , and sold all the steel plating material he had bought.

He always regretted not building in a medium with which he was more familiar. I am looking for designs similar to Kodiak in any type of wood construction. I think I am more interested in the building than the cruising. A fair set of lines and a well drawn contruction plan makes my mouth water. Peace to all, Ben

All I can say is WOW!. What a project. Love the bow thruster built in there. I guess you won't be turning that one with a few mates and some beer... :shock:
By the time I have built a boat, I'll be ready to build a boat....

Welcome to the Forum!


Gayle,

Just getting the hang of using the forum. Thanks for your kind words! Will try to get some progress pics out. I appreciate the personal touch you add to the Glen-l website and newsletters.
