📝 New to model boat building.
I've built a few Dumas boats and find them OK.Pictures of them in my Boat Harbor.
The biggest thing with your choice is that it will be double planked hulled and the second planking is mahogany.
For a first boat it will be a little more work for you.
If you can find a fishing boat that you like that may be a good start.
What ever you decide help is here .
