    Forget the place out in Wasilla, you won't be happy dealing with them.

    unless you come across some great deals on very used parts, it is a lot cheaper to buy a used boat then to build one. have you ever been on one, do you know anything at all about them. i've never seen a book on how to build one. buy a cheap one and learn from it, there is a aircraft motor boat on CL now pretty cheap, it will work for you, but you need to learn a lot. yea, bigger boats are safer and carry more moose, but a small one will work for learning. you can even get financing for them with some of the credit unions, i've heard.
