I am in Portland Maine and I have the plans for the OD18- but I am currently building an OB15 as I do not have the space right now to build an 18 foot boat. <BR>-John

I´m in Londonderry, NH. I have an OD-18 hull, inverted, wintering over in half of my garage. Now that the weather is finally breaking, I hope I can get back to it soon.

I´m in Lunenburg, MA- around Leominster/Fitchburg. I´m building the GV13 as my first boat. Am learning quickly. Bought the wood and marked and cut everything to complete the hull, built the strongbacks, mounted my frames, stitched my panels, taped chine and center seam. Am about ready to do front/back transom seams and then full fiberglass on bottom. Then I can either finish the exterior or flip and start interior- haven´t decided which one I´ll do yet.<BR><BR>-Dave

I was thinking ahead that once my boat is built anyone interested would be willing to have a get together at a place to be determined. It is probably not likely to happen anytime soon but let´s keep it in mind. <BR>The kit is here and I have managed to cut out one panel but this weather is putting a real damper on the building activities. I am aiming for boat completely assembled by the end of June.<BR>finishing could take a while(have to stay employedwife´s orders).<BR>Mark

I´m on track to meet that timeline. Were you thinking lake, bay, etc? Just about anywhere in New England is good for me. However, I´m only building a 13´ boat, so it would have to be somewhere 13 footer friendly.<BR><BR>-Dave
