Slow Start

I've not managed to get the project underway yet, for various reasons, but I'm hopeful of constructing the workshop soon.

I have planning permission for a garage, which I was hoping to temporarily modify to allow me to build my F32. I've been in dialogue with the council planning department for six weeks now and should know the outcome this week. If refused, then I'll build the garage to the existing plans, which will allow me to construct all the smaller parts of the boat and find somewhere nearby to build the floats and main hull.

I've been using my time to study the F32 plans in more detail and have decided on the aft cabin version with a daggerboard.

Plans Arrive

I received my F32AX plans this week. I've studied them for several days and the level of detail and clarity is excellent.
I've now to buy some more tools, construct the workshop, source materials for the boat, then make a start on the actual building. I'm about to get very busy!

First Post

Hope you can read this as I'm new to blogging!

I've been following the F-Boat website for several years and have decided that life's too short to keep on dreaming, so decision made - I ordered the plans for an F32AX today.

My inspiration has come from the various blogs for F22, F32, F39 and F82 - thanks to all of you. I'll add the links to the blogs that I follow once I work out how it's done.

Just got to finish the outstanding DIY jobs before the plans arrive!
