As the ying  and yang balance each other, so does the "how to" and the "why to".  This section of the site is about the mental side of the journey.  If it doesn't require power tools or stinky chemicals, it goes into this bucket.  In this section I will describe how I came to select the CS27 as my boat of choice.  Some of the criteria which led me to this boat lead nicely into a discussion of the key design strategies I tried to employ in selecting components and projects.  We'll talk about the selection of the boat's name, and even someday post a virtual tour of the finished product.

Eventually I'd like to post a series of Standard Operating Procedures for my particular CS27 as I think they may be a useful foundation for other boats, and a good exercise in organizing how I get things done.
