.... oh well, I know 17.2ft in water is not that much, but in a cramped garage it feels huge! Today I got the hull components home on my trusty ol' Fiesta. Couldn't resist and had a go at lining up the boat's floor, the stem profile, 2 widest frames and the transom just to have a gauge at the size of the boat.
Impressive! I think it'll end up being a little fiddly to work around it at stages in the garage, but once launched she'll be perfect for our intended use.
... consider that in this shot of the garage our little stornoway 12 "Janas" is missing while she's normally sitting on her trailer on the right hand side.
