With the idea that it's best to have definite goals, I've decided that the best chance of following through with this project will come with a deadline. Without one, it might be easier to lose steam and let the project languish. So with a publicly proclaimed deadline to measure against, hopefully the project will stay on track.

Since the current idea is that this boat will take about 100 hours to complete, I've calculated a feasible pace to adhere to. Assuming no less than one full 8 hour day on the weekends, and an hour on four of five weeknights, I can put in 12 hours of labor per week. That comes to 8.3 weeks to completion. That is an average that will have to hold up through the holiday season, to arrive at the completion deadline: January 9, 2006. Let the countdown begin!

You've chosen your boat, ordered the kit, bought your tools, and sat back with anticipaiton. Sounds like a good plan to me, except you haven't allowed for time to buy even more tools. Your gunter sloop looks like she will handle well. I learned to sail in a 9-foot Turnabout (as an adult), and in many ways I enjoyed those days more than any other sailing adventures since.
