Paul, the gestation period for this restoration will run to term at 12 months and we are aiming to be out of nappies/diapers by the end of May 2013 since our first race will be at Les Voiles d'Antibes early in June.
We aim to have the structure finished by end of June. Next month we will begin spar construction, and also repairs to the interior bulkheads and furniture so that before decking, everything is ready to fit without holding up the work. I think that September/October will be manic months as all will start to come together rapidly and we will probably be fitting the engine, plumbing, electricity etc. I would hope to launch and step the rig in December and do a sea trial prior to delivery to France sometime mid-January. We have an average of 8 chippies on the boat, sometimes 10 on a good day. We also have the possibility of hiring more at any time should the need arise. Unemployment is high here and they are crying out for jobs.
As to the budget, it is sufficient, set in stone, non negotiable, doesn't grow on trees and private!
As for finding time for this, it's easy. This is the only country I have ever visited that didn't have an Irish Pub so I don't get out much!
