He sold it, went through a divorce. Part of the settlement was that he had to sell his boat... What a bitch! That is the F'ing you get for the ...
Remember, the ark was built by amateurs; the Titanic was built by professionals.
Started building Paula J the 2nd Week of June 2015, finished her the second week of July 2016.

That sucks. I think that's been the fate of many [former] Tolman/GA owners. I never saw it for sale - I would have bought it  (it was in CA and it was the hull I am going to build ).

I'd better keep prepping my wife for what's to come - "honey, you know this is a multi year project", etc.  I don't want any marital strife!  We've final got the new house with the huge side yard  (moving in shortly ). I've started sketching again and rereading the manual in preparation.
