I have an empty garage…..

I have for a long time wanted to build a small boat for day sailing and the occasional camping trip. This year a found myself with a garage that can fit a 15’ boat and some unplanned spare time, when in addition I was given a boat building course for my 40th birthday there was no longer any excuse. I had to build a boat.

After a lot of searching the web I have decided to build John Welsford’s Walkabout design.

In this blog I will try to document my build, partly for me but I also thought is may serve as a useful reference for other builders, I will also try to document how much time and money I spend on the build.

And by the way I need to be finished before next summer……

...wish me luck!
