The Time It Takes to Take the Time
One question I am asked, quite frequently, is: when will the boat be done? The answer to that question is somewhat complicated. Why? Because you can't set a completion date when it comes to boat building or boat restoration. There will always be snags, delays, and unforeseen mishaps. If I had to be pinned down for an exact answer, the Orca will probably be completed in late 2025 or ealy 2026. This project is a marathon, not a race. When you rush things, mistakes happen, and half-assed work is done. My goal is to have a safe and shipshape vessel, not an imitation that sinks in the harbor. Season 2 of my YouTube videos has finally launched after a year delay. I often think that as people watching a project come to fruition, whether it be a car restoration or building a boat, that we often forget that the creator of said project has a life of their own. My whole world does not revolve around Jaws or the Orca, although both are very much on my brain. The Orca Rebuild project is a passion project and a fan project. The Orca will be completed when it is completed, and it will be done RIGHT.
