Greetings Bowmovement! Where in the PNW are you? Originally from NC too and I've been lurking here for a few years trying to learn as much as possible before tackling one myself. I just shot over a PM with my email and other info as I'm hoping your close by and I can provide and extra set of hands, even in with the fairing process. :)

I figured I would check in and introduce myself. Matt is the name and electronics is my game. We just moved to area from San Diego Ca. I am originally form eastern N.C. New Bern to be exact. I have been wanting to build my own boat for a long time and just haven't been in the position to do so. Since we just moved to the area we are renting but in the market for buying. I am hoping to be in a house by the end of the year, if not sooner.

I stumbled upon this website through another site searching for stitch and glue Carolina hulls. All of my boatbuilding research has been done on the stitch and glue method. The one website that most of my research has been done offers a couple plans that they state has some Carolina flare but its not a lot and the boats are a little larger than I want to tackle right now. When I found this website I instantly knew I wanted to build one of these. Being in the Pacific Northwest almost everything is aluminum, of the fiberglass boats on the market here its a lot of Bayliner and Trophy's. These boats have a place in the market, but that place is not my driveway.

Had a nice talk with Marc on the phone about the different models that are offered and finally decided on the 17 Inshore. It will be a while before I get started on this but that gives me plenty of time to study up on the build process for cold molded vs. stitch and glue.
