@lskh oh, sorry, but this idea seemed to have been flourishing in the back of mind for a good while, waiting for any excuse to burst through taking much of my ability to explain myself clearly.
Seriously... is the domain this reason has been a rare guest to. But i'm full of diy energy and if you'd ever need a dazzled apprentice boat builder, you still have my sig :)
@lskh I watched a ton of the Tally Ho project this past year. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCg-_lYeV8hBnDSay7nmphUA
@mousebot @lskh I am certainly *interested* in boat building, but truthfully have only done restoration work on the tall ships I work on, never built a boat. Though I do have parts of a skin on frame kayak waiting for me in sister's garage once I finish my current sailing stint. And I am interested in design, as all sailors ought to be. There's a fair few live aboard sailors around the fedi, and they do a lot of their own maintenance work. Keep an eye on #shipyard for that sort of stuff
@lskh I know a few boat builders, but they usually repair old boats or build replicas of them. There are several amateurs building boats (or trying to and then abandoning the project) around too, but I doubt any of them are around on the fediverse.
@lskh I've been overcome with thoughts of building sharpie or sharpie-like sail boats over the past few weeks. I've not ever found boats compelling before. Some portion of me is hoping the urge passes.
