I don’t know him David but his story is well worth following. I can hardly remember when I could manhandle pieces of wood that big. It’s a huge undertaking and his videos are well done and entertaining.
+1 on your recommendation.

I’ve been following this kids work on bringing this Cutter back and it’s been really compelling.
He has had a lot of people come up to help him from time to time, and he has moved Heaven & Earth to rebuild this ship.
I highly suggest watching this series. It’s quite good.

WOW, That is quite a project.

Seems like the financing issue would be very difficult. Wonder how they address it?

thanks rollie

last year while helping a friend
on a house fix back east

i got to meet acorn to arabella
for a gathering open house bbq

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aLKBS-j-ftw&list=PLH4J0b3KfGaNED27Y1kCvS_mSQtyXsiwC

the boat was in its framing stage at that time

a friendly rivalry is shared between these two builds
as they know each other from boating events and expos

tally ho (leo) is a pro boat builder

while jim and alex have never built a boat before
and have learned as they go

two different methods of builds
that share many common solutions

both a mixture of traditional and modern styles

as far as finance go both projects have
patreon, amazon, facebook, and followers
that contribute money, tools, supplies
for the thrill of being part of the exciting builds

i follow both for the tips and methods i have gleaned
thru their sharing thru the videos
of methods and tips i learn thru them

Happy even more to see you up and running, I do send you good thoughts from time to time.
