- Dec 4, 2002IMHO - In my honest opinion
The Idaho has a false floor in it for a wheel chair and for the cabin. It's
very narrow for it's length too.
Yes, a beginner could build a Wyo but don't! It's a ton of work and money
to invest to find out your not into boat building.
The Tennessee is a big boat as well. If you've never built a boat, I'd at
least knock together something simple like a Teal, a Dory, or such to get
the hang of building.
I finished a big part of a Tennessee before selling it and moving on to the
Wyo. I've owned and studied all of these plans and "IMHO" the Tennessee is
the easiest of the three. It's also is the cheapest in materials.
