Great to hear!

And you even have a shelter for the stradivarius. Much better to have the boat there rather than the car smile

It sounds as if you already enjoy the boat - and is ready for more once spring is there. (I forgot that you have "winter" in Australia at this time of year.. )

I know Ian Farrier used to have some kind of trend chart on his site for how many working hours each "personality" needed to complete their building projects. From the very fast carpenter who went saling after a year in a basic boat to the cabinet maker who spent the rest of his life in the boatbuilding workshop. Have you considered where you placed in between those extremes?
