Hi George,
I've taken up kite boarding/surfing and have lost interest in the proa.  It was orginally estimated to be built in 250 hours by a competent amateur and, I believe, is taking pros over six times that  The true number of building hours far exceeds my level of interest.  If you are interested I'll send the pictures of what I have completed, but the boat will not be around in a year.  If I don't sell it within a couple of weeks it's going in the garbage.
Thanks for your interest.

Why are you selling ? With all the work you have already put in I would think you would want to complete the project and go sailing.  If at all possible you should try to finish the boat.  I know it is a lot of work as I have built a number of boats myself including a Seaclipper 28 and TT720.  I expect you may regret selling a few years down the road !  Building boats and sailing is an addiction you never get over.  A few years after selling my Seaclipper 28 (To help finance a new house)  I then had to build another boat and built a TT720 
I am currently planning on building a Harryproa in another year, as soon as I finish the house I am working on.  My wife says I have to finish the house first !  So if you sill have boat for sale in another year I may possible consider it.
