It all starts with a dream. . . . Wait . . . . No? . . . Maybe a set of plans? Usually more ideas in the head than are on paper. It doesn’t stop there. The dream gets bigger and cooler as the creativity kicks in. Then the reality kicks in to make things more managable. Often time it is something that remains more dream and less reality. I read in a book the best way to make a dream more reality is to just start putting things together So here we go!! HANG ON!! I got these plans below from George. Check back, feel free to comment, keep up with the project progress. I plan to go from Kansas City on the wide Missouri to Louisiana, on the Mississippi to check out that shrimp gumbo with my brother (Kevin) and a friend (Craig) when this is finished!
This is the river boat I am going to build. This particular craft (the Darwin) belongs to Chris. You can charter this craft on the Kalamzoo River in Michigan. I hear the shrimp gumbo in New Orleans is the best! so I figured I would build this boat and go down there to check it out. My craft will be 28 feet long and 9 feet wide when she is finished. I will be working on her for quite a while with several pauses as cash flow dictates. so Keep checking back to see how she is coming. Comments are welcome.
