Re: [bolger] Wyoming
- Agreed, I would never think of the Wyo for just pleasure. We wish to cruise, when that's over, we'll sell her off. If I could get a mooring on the local lake maybe use her as a floating cabin, but even at 26 miles long and 3 wide, she would see out of place.
I'm still researching the possibility of building almost all of the pieces individually. Sides could be put together and cut to size, but not glue up the joints in say three places to they can be handled easier. My drive way is over 50' long so it could be done. It is a vertical sided boat so once the sides are cut and bulkheads made, you'd have the basis for all measurements. All seams are backed up with 1 1/2" square stock and heavily nailed/screwed with bronze hardware, it could be assembled without waiting for epoxy to cure. At least to some extent.
I have access to a large hanger free of charge for up to 120 days. (As in the Boss has an airplane in his own hanger and the plane is gone each summer from June through Sept.)
And it may just be too big a project, don't know yet.

I don't see how you can get it to 15000. What is the
other experience out there? A boat this size would
need great weather, or a fairly expensive shed to
build, that can run you. If you can't work
efficiently at night, set up efficient tool stations
etc... it takes forever to build. A nice average is
the same size as your boat length squared, though at
that length that is overkill. But that is just one
A 50 foot boat is really large. It is a huge
millstone to your non-boating lifestyle. The guys who
made the large demountable Schooner who seem pretty
rugged as far af repeat offenders are concerned, ended
up putting her in storage because the upkeep became excessive.
