My plan is for 3 Buccaneer 10 - 31.
(Matt, could you please PM me a link to pay you the royalties on the 2 extra builds from the plans purchased....Cheers)

Bucc' # 1 underway.... I'll get her stitched up and probably start # 2 so that I have the builds running concurrently...
(I once referred to concurrent builds as being the next level of addiction....Admitting it's the first step! :D )

These are being built for friends....they have two children aged about 11 and 13 so I think the Buccaneer will be a great little boat for them to muck around in...

Bucc' # 3 is for me. I'm keen to see how she goes as a little fishing yak..... Just as an alternative to my good ol' Cape Fear......

Hi Olsnappa,
Glad to see your getting on with a Buccaneer build(s)

Am still interested in one for the grandson so will be watching your build with keen interest.

Best wishes for your ongoing health as well.

Cheers John

G'day John... Thanks mate.
I'm hoping to get these moving along fairly swiftly... I got Bucc # 1 stitched up yesterday and will wack a couple of pic's up tomorrow.
I also got the panels for Bucc # 2 cut out so will hopefully get her assembled soon. :)

G'day bloke, i'll give you one thing, you don't muck around once you get going.

Will be watching with interest. Just got my plans for a Northwind, will be making it SS&G, so may take a while. Plus
I am helping a mate build a SS&G Freedom 15 as well.

A Buccaneer will be next on the list.
Cheers John

Bucc' # 1 is stitched together...

I've modified my two work tables a bit by mounting them on castors. They're a bit "knocked together" but work well and are sturdy enough.
I did this so I could move each build in and out of the garage easily for convenience...
Melbourne's fickle Autumn weather was one reason too. I like to work outside if possible but wanted to be able to retreat undercover quickly when one of our Autumn showers comes rolling in.
