10 Years in the Making

Posted by J. Calvert on Jul 24, 2007

Well not quite 10, but pretty close. I bought my kit in November 1997. Got off to a great start, but then a series of events in my life pushed it to the backburner. I finally refocused on it this spring and sucessfully launched my Chesapeake 18 in the Bodkin Creek off of the Chesapeake Bay last night.

Still have a few odds and ends such as deck rigging and compass to add, but it was such a beatiful night I had to go for a paddle.

Many thanks to all who have answered my questions and for the information I 've gotten from this board. It's helped keep me on track and get to completion.
