Welcome John, I envy you youngsters, a scratch built
boat to any standard is always the best way to get what you want, and this site is full of members
with the knowledge and skills to help, sadly I have never been able to build
from scratch, but I make lots of parts
to repair or replace damaged or missing parts
from the vintage model
s I have restored. Best advice
is to ask specific questions to get the best help in the world at your fingertips.
ling and cheers from me Colin.
