Awesome, while a somewhat overused and under appreciated adjective these days, is entirely appropriate for this boat. Being a lifelong woodworker and builder, I was awe-struck while looking at the pictures, and stand in awe at the planning and dedication required to complete such a task. Perhaps it's not appropriate to ask in this thread, but what are the maintenance requirements for something like this, and what will happen if not maintained properly? I noticed the first haul-out was in two years from launch--is this typical for the first haul-out, and then perhaps a longer period, or would it be a regular 2 year schedule? How seaworthy of a passage-maker is this boat? I could go on and on, but really just want to express my admiration for a project such as this. Incredible!
Most of my life's been spent boarding, biking, boating and bullshitting--the rest I wasted.
