Here’s a doco I got from puremajik
Here are some sketches of the two different sizeed building facilities.
Finding a spot to build the boat will not be simple. I have thought about this long and hard and have come to the conclusion that to get a suitable rental spot will cost around $300 per week at least and quite frankly I would rather put that money into the boat. So I am now looking at splitting the build into phases and move the boat post each phase.
First phase:- building two hulls to a point where they are finished as much as possible before building the bridge deck;
Second Phase:- Build the bridge deck and get the boat fitted out enough to be a motor boat;
Third Phase:- fit out of boat to be a sailing boat;
The first phase requires an area of 20meters by 5 meters under cover. In order to keep costs as low as possible I plan to build a temporary structure along the lines of PureMajik’s shelter. Search for the name and you will find their blog. I bought their plans for the shed and have modified it to suit my needs. There are many examples of these simple steel tube and custom made tarps around various blogs on the web. As usual this presents a few home life challenges. The area that I plan to use has some trees on it but more importantly has a vegi garden belonging to the father in law…(they live with us). So I am waiting for the right time to move this. Negotiations are pending 😉
When one hull is completed I will move it into the back yard area and start on the next hull.
Moving the hulls to the Second phase build area will be a challenge but doable. I need to confirm with a moving company but I believe its as I have seen large trucks dropping off roof-sheeting and those trucks are longer.
Regarding the second phase build requirements, the covered area is 20m by 11.5m. This is a challenge because wherever I go will need a door that is 9m by 4.5m. Not easy to find, and expensive, even more so near the water. I had serious thoughts about clearing some more trees out of the way and building here but I really think trucking it out of here will be close to impossible. So I am now looking for farm sheds or farm land close to the main road where I can get a cheap lease for a temp shelter. I have done the prelim design on the shelter and dont think there will be a problem building a suitable structure. SO right now the idea is to get access to a small piece of farmland, put in a generator and build the bridgedeck and fit out there.
The third part is the sailing fitout. My plan is to do this on the water. There is a marina close by that I can get a mooring for about $20K a year. At this stage this will become part of the maintenance ownership costs and will be budgeted for differently.
Will add pictures and drawings as i go.
