This Was Built By A Couple In Their Backyard For 14 Years. The End Result Is Just WOW.

One advantage of married couples having mutual hobbies is that they are brought closer together in their marriage. And there are a lot of husbands and wives out there who work on certain projects together. Interestingly, this married couple decided to do something that would both bring them closer and give even the bravest of carpenters a run for their money.

The idea came when they started dreaming about owning a boat when they retire. But this boat was unlike any other boat. It was a massive 45′ aluminum sailboat. So slowly but surely, they built their dream boat in their backyard over a period of 14 years. Though it seemed long, they never gave up and they did the process from start to finish. It was indeed a long process, but it was totally worth it when everything was done.
