I was close to buying an Adirondack Guideboat, but it was just a little too wife friendly for me. I want a man boat with a sliding seat that I can row fast without a picnic basket. The Annapolis Wherry looks like the answer. I had not planned on building a boat, but it does not seem too difficult. I was an avid builder of audophile speakers, so I do have some experience building cabinets with semi-complicated interior compartments.
Am I nuts or can I tackle a project like this without attending a class? I have a 3-car garage and lots of power tools. Upon completion, the boat would be transported to our lake house in the NC/GA mountains. If I kept it out of the water in a covered boat slip, would that be acceptable storage for a wooden boat? What options are recommended for this type of boat on a lake?
