Moved into new house this weekend. Well everything except the boat and plywood. Not sure how i'm going to move it. I don't have a trailer yet and don't really want one sitting around until I'm ready for it. Thinking I'm going to push it down the street on the cradle. I only moved 1 mile away. New house has smaller garage and no extra room to do epoxy work. I can't imagine Lisa letting me use the kitchen table, but I will press on.

A mile is a bit of a ways to push the boat on the dollie. Perhaps a flat bed trailer? A pain yes, but I seriously doubt that the casters on the build dollie could take that kind of punishment.

As for the space, a plastic folding table and a canopy do wonders for outside work. Nearly everything I do is outside out of necessity. Right now all my free space (what little there is) is taken up with interior cabinetry waiting to be put back in the boat. And the work bench never seems to stay clean for very long, It's a doable thing, just watch your back from having to bend over the table.

Big problem with my build. Now that all the moving is settled (except the boat), the garage is too short to fit the boat. Also, too narrow to put boat on an angle and still get Lisa's car in the garage. I am going to have to get a portable carport to work in. Anyone have any experience with one and have a suggestion on which to get?

First thought is, how does the HOA feel about a temporary carport? I would start by negotiating a temporary claim to the entire garage with Lisa. You could have that boat wrapped up by the onset of winter.

No HOA. Town allows them. Lisa is okay with it. Kind of thought it would be a good idea for winter storage anyway.

I don't have any experience with temporary carports. Glad you have that as a solution so you can continue your build.

Do you have room on your property for a shop or even a pole barn? You might be surprised how affordable that option might be and you could used it for other projects/storage after the boat build. I don't regret building my shop at all; been enjoying it for many years now! My shop is 24'x30' which was a good size for the Malahini. The A/C is really nice in the summer/winter too :D . Best of luck getting this worked out.

They would be nice options but would require permits and variances.

I finally have my tent erected and the boat moved to my new house. Maybe now I can start working on it again. Still lots to do inside house though.

I hired a tow truck to move it. I still think it would have been fun to push it down the street with me inside making boat noises. Couldn't get my boys to go for it though.

Looks great Bryan. I think you made the right choice to use a flat bed.
