Red, I would not hesitate to buy a boat you and yours rebuilt for the reason you pointed out. So for me the well known builder has little effect on my decision to buy a boat. Insurance not withstanding some folks just do a good job.

The Designer of this New Zealand boat - one the most celebrated designers of beautiful boats.

John Lidgard - say no more.

Just Google "John Lidgard"

Read his book : 'It's in the Blood' - the Lidgard family story

My understanding is that John Lidgard himself oversaw a lot of the build and boat builders from his boat building company were also involved at critical stages.

Once more into the breach my friends- all is adding up well and the next stage- hull survey- is in the morning. Up on the hard at 10am.

Fingers crossed it all goes well
