Great platform to start with! Going to be a nice boat when you are done. Keep at it and it will all be worth it when it's finished. Don't be afraid to take the baby out when it's done either. Had my son out at 8 weeks old; now 2 year later, he is a boating addict. Good luck with the build. Congrats on the baby!
