"All you need in this life is ignorance and confidence; then success is sure."
- Mark Twain

I recently built my first boat - a Trilars by Jim Michalak. I didn't take many construction photos - there are a couple great sites with detailed construction photos that I found very helpful during my build - you can find them on the links page.  It took me around 160 hours to build over a 6 month period. If you have any experience building boats I think you could complete it in a much shorter time period. I spent a lot of time in my "moaning chair" trying to figure out how to do something or redoing things because I made stupid mistakes that only became obvious immediately after I made them. (But not so obvious that I didn't occasionally make them again) Whether you choose to build a Trilars or another design I hope this site will encourage you to give it a try - it's great fun!
