      I'm a little surprised you didn't choose the CS 17 for your next build. Let
      me guess: you wanted somewhere to stow some gear including a Portalble. My
      opinion is this is a heck of a boat - able to take way more than you would
      want to be out in. Good luck.

      > Finally, Bill, you devil. Didn't know your were building a Frolic.

      Since Pete blew my cover I might as well fess up. Yep, I'm building the
      Frolic2. I've been reluctant to say too much about it since I'm not
      building it for any particular event, and there is no time table.

      I built my first boat because I wanted to go sailing. I spent every spare
      moment I had for seven months to get her done in time for a messabout. She
      turned out great, and we've enjoyed her for six seasons. Like every boat,
      she has her shortcomings, and Frolic2 seems to overcome them nicely.

      This time I'm building for a different reason. Building Frolic2 is about
      enjoying the building process, and experiencing the sense of accomplishment
      that comes with building each piece and each assembly.
      It's about seeing how well I can do this. Since I already have a sailboat,
      there's no rush.

      If I can get philosophical for a moment, I think the emotional benefits of
      building boats is underrated. One of the happiest times of my life was when
      I was building my boat. For those of us who get a thrill from
      accomplishment, or having an impact, or improving things, boat building is a
      blessing. Each time I go out to the garage and make something, I feel
      better. It's cheaper than therapy, and you get a new boat in the bargain.
