Greetings from Australia. I have had the Belhaven plans for some time without commencing my build. Now I see the CS 20 Mk 3 and see many advantages with water ballast and the raised deck design. I have read all the comments about the Belhaven cabin (eg. Scott's descriptions) and it is what I want, and assume the CS 20 cabin is much smaller as it's not designed as a cruiser. If comfort is more important than speed to me, should I just build the Belhaven as is, as I am sure the design works extremely well? Or, with the more advanced features of the CS Mk3 design, should I build one of those and modify the cabin to be more cruiser-oriented? Then of course, there's the P22, but that's in a different league I believe. Thanks all - keep building. Brent
Aloha! I am just about ready to start the building process of My Belhaven 19! I am very excited about the project as I have wanted a boat like this for a few years now and just completed my workshop/boathouse to start building. I have built some traditional wooden boats prior, but never have built stitch and glue and am a bit confused by the first steps. I have seen that there were a few people on here that have photo catalogged their build, but the posts were too old to see the pictures, etc. WOndering if anyone knows a good starting place. Thanks!
