      JW Swaggie is a nice design, If you like building, then yes its an ok thing to do. But if your interested in being on what water,, then I ask why build it. There are heaps of medium sized monohulls out there, with fixed keels, that you can buy much cheaper than they cost to build. Many many very sound fiberglass boats out there, with fixed lead keels, 22ft to 25ft. All built, all set to go.

      To build a swaggie, then add all the extras, depth souder, barometer, stove, anchor etc, its going to cost 20K US dollars  easily. You can buy something very sound in fiberglass that is all set to go for half the price. They might be old, but they are totally fine boats. 

      Of course if you want to spend a year or more doing your own thing,, then ok build it. So much work, big dollars in accessories.
