Wellcome aboard Matt.
This is my first and many advised me to start small. It has been a huge struggle but as I said very enjoyable and a learning process. I want to do the Caldercraft Victory next. I included a book that I highly recommend to anyone building any Victory as it is very complete in all aspects from planking to rigging to many things that were not in my Billings directions and I found many things wrong in the directions. I believe this book is still accessible. Mine came from a lady in England. I highly recommend this.I"m working on a Mamoli Victory.... definately a challenge
