After mulling it over for about 5 years, I finally decided to build a kit boat and ordered a Wood Duck 10 Hybrid yesterday. I chose it for the manageable size, apparent stability, and good looks. I'm building it for my wife, which is why she let me buy it :)
I'm worried about it though, as I have zero wood working skills and I just read a post from a guy in New Zealand who recently finished a beautiful Mill Creek, and it took him a year to build. I don't think I can occupy our back porch that long and suddenly winter isn't far away.
Any advice welcome. Thanks.
