    You are probably no more likely to build a boat that will withstand the extremes of what the GL s can deliver than most folks are to build the invensible ocean

      You are probably no more likely to build a boat that will withstand the
      extremes of what the GL's can deliver than most folks are to build the
      invensible ocean vessel. So no matter what you build you'll choose you're
      sailing conditions carefully. With that in mind I'd encourage you to take on
      a small project if you haven't previously build a boat. Something like
      Windsprint or June Bug or something else small, in the "old" instant boat
      tradition. Keep it small and cheap so you can conceivable build it over the
      winter (assuming you have shelter). For under a thousand dollars (including
      rig) you can have something in the water by early summer that will give you
      great satisfaction plus something to experiment with in moderate conditions.
      Then take on MJ, Micro, AS 29, or Jochems, etc. You'll gain priceless
      experience and have something to have fun with during your non-building
      times. Happy building.
