Thanks RMB! I'm going to have to measure my garage today and see what I can fit in there. Believe it is 26x25 or so. May be a tight squeeze.
I will definitely give Marc and Co a call. I want to start planning it out and figuring timelines and costs associated with the build (excluding electronics and power for now).
I like the look of the 22' and 24', even more with a bracket. Would like something to get me offshore when I can go and something that can accommodate the kids for cruises around Charleston and barrier islands.
Thanks for all the help thus far. Hope you can find me in the build forum in the fall...
What Jay said x2 go for the size you want instead of doing a smaller one first. You can always get a portable car port like the other guys have done. The smaller the boat the tighter the curves and more bending of wood. As for cost call Marc or Gus they will talk boats all day long with you, no presure either.
Heath, I don't think you need to start with a smaller (16') hull just because you've not built a boat before. As a matter of fact the small hulls can be a bit more difficult. You can do whatever you're comfortable with, but I would think you'd be fine with a 23' (or 22, or 24) for your first.
