Ever since the wife signed me up for sailing lessons a while back, I’ve dreamed of owning my own sailboat. Such toys are expensive, but luckily the Balmain Boat Company has the prefect option for the budget conscience, sailboater/handyman. Their DIY Sailboat Kit comes with everything you need to BUILD your own mini-sail boat including materials and step-by-step instructions. I’m not sure I’d be able to convince the wife to get in it with me, as she doesn’t have the upmost confidence in my handyman abilities. But come on, how cool would it be to make your own sailboat?! And for just over $2500, it’s certainly cheaper than buying the real thing.
