Next August I would like to participate in the Columbia 150, a 5 day journey down the Columbia River.
I would think that even with the kit, a 9 month build time is just too short. Or is it? If I used the kit and it took 200 hours to build and I had 40 weekends, that's about 5 hours a weekend. I have that... plus another hours or so over the weeknights. I've built two boats before, though the mast on the sailboat was aluminum.
Is a 200 hour build time possible with the kit? I would buy the sail and trailer. It would be a high quality build, but not gold plated.
Can CLC get me the plans next week and the kit within two or three weeks? I could start building the hardwood parts right away.
Shipping cost estimate?
Thoughts? Too ambitious?
