- Jan 11, 2010i don't know about "best", but i have been building (very part-time) a sailing version of the Elegant Punt since early october and am nearly finished with it. i just finished the last major task of fashioning the tiller and rudder and i should be starting to paint soon. right after i drill for the gudgeons and pintles.
other than the past three months of making sawdust in the garage, i have had zero wood working experience. building from the book was a little rough at points. to do it again, i'd certainly get the plans, too. whatever i couldn't glean from the book, i cobbled together from online photos and questions asked here.
good luck, have fun and don't sweat the mistakes.
