Rich Hanenburg dedicated more than 5000 hours over 6 years to the construction of his 28' Nordcoaster called HOHUM. The hull and cabin are made from plywood, with framing in mahogany, fir, and oak; then Rich covered the entire boat with fiberglass and epoxy. Rich has built 10 plywood boats, and HOHUM is his last and largest, at 28'. Rich notes that he needed 18 gallons of paint and varnish to finish her off. Doesn't sound like a ho hum project at all.
