Start of a new build. German newbie

Hi,
I just started to build the pocketship from plans. I plan to document the journey on youtube. First video is online:

I don't have any experience in boatbuilding nor youtube-creations, so please be patient. Helpful comments are very welcome! :-)

Hello Mlade,

thanks for sharing. To my knowledge yours is the 3rd ongoing build in Germany (ours, the third one).

Thanks for your reply. Where are you from? Do you know, where the third build is located?
I'm building in the north of the Saarland.

Mlade and Dbeck - Welcome to the Journey, I think I found your videos when there were each about 3 or 4 views. I search youtube regularly for PocketShip and that's how I found you popping up in the rotation. Definitely ask questions if you have them and definitely search the forums as most likely someone else has already asked or posted something similar. Looking forward to your progress updates. Also, I'm pathetically behind in my blog updates by about a year now. I swear I'll get back to them after first splash. It will be cheaper than immediately jumping into another build ;)
Thanks,

It's about pouring lead and glassing the centerboard and case.
