Building Rutu

"What makes a person want to build a boat?  I don't mean a dinghy or even a day sailor. I mean a real cruising boat. It is certainly not money. It would be easier and cheaper and quicker to buy an older production boat and fix it up.   It isn't the idea that you can't find anything you like.  There are more choices in buying a modern production sail boats than there are in buying an automobile but few people have an overwhelming desire to build a car. Some people combine these two reasons and almost convince themselves.  But the only justifiable reason for building your own boat is the overwhelming desire to create something."
