It's Official
« on: September 18, 2020, 09:16:05 PM »
It's official! Convinced the wife that we should build a boat and we bought a set of plans. It's going to be a little while before we can start, and a long road to completion but we are excited to build a Kodiak in the next few years. Thanks for all the inspiration and knowledge on this forum.

Make yourself a list of all the bells and whistles you want throughout the entire boat. Then get to doing a bunch of research of everything on the list, it will help with the entire process. It will keep you plenty busy while you wait to start your build and you will be way ahead of the game when you do start.

That's the goal. I'm realistically about a year out from the start of the build. I'm a security contractor in Kabul Afghanistan, so I'm not stateside much. The goal is to transition to a normal job stateside the year and buy a house. Once we get to past that part, the build is on. Until then, learn, learn, learn.

Like Chuck said on research - but add to that everything that Dan Boccia posted here too.  He made a special effort to post systems stuff to help others, electrical systems included.
