Tim Diebert Posted January 27, 2005 Author Report Share Posted January 27, 2005 You would think with the intensity of my discussion that I would be itching to start something right away. Not in my case. What I am doing is, for the first time in my life, planning out exactly what I am going to want to do well in advance of actually needing the project or starting it. I am looking at this boat I am dreaming on as being my 'end boat', my last boat. The one I am going to use every damn day once I retire. Hell, I might not even build it until I retire. I have built small boats and been involved in the building of several really huge boats and I have done extensive repairs on boats. I know exactly the amount of time and sweat that goes into such a project. I am a woodworker for a living and have been for 30 years. Right now, I am so burned out with what I do day and and day out....that another woodworking project would not appeal to me at all...no matter how badly I wanted the end result. I doubt I could get it up to go back into the shop to do more woodworking on my time off. So, that's why I figured once I slow down and do less of my usual work....I will be all tuned up for a right proper boat building fest. Ideally, I would like to build my boat 'full time' with no distractions...have the shop all to myself and the boat. (Hmmmm, now that I think of it, if I arranged the shop just right, I could build a 20 footer in there, and still have room for a full band and a party on Sat. nights) In the meantime, any spare time I get...weather permitting... goes into sailing....cuz in the end, that is really where all my interest lives. The boat is secondary. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
