Don’t make the same mistake… EXPENSIVE mistake I made, and start small on a restoration journey. On ebay today is a barrel Back Dumas kit thats been built and not finished. I had thought it would be fun to buy it and turn it into a left in the field look. Put some rot on it, maybe a dead mouse.. With a for sale sign for 50K. But then I thought, mmmm this may be a better thing to tell folks to try.
The hard part has been done. She needs to be sanded and varnished. Details added and generally the fun part of the process. And even better if you already have an actual size barrel Back, in a weekend you could have a model of your own boat? Or you can sit around and watch the news and throw things at the TV screen? mmm Seems like an easy choice to me? I have run out of shoes and books to throw, anyway.
