This makes for an enjoyable kit to assemble.

Not included in kits are;

  • Fiberglass for bottom (5 yds. 20 oz. Triaxial)
  • Epoxy for coating (2 gal. with appropriate hardener)
  • Finish (one quart will barely do the outside) additional will be needed if varnishing the interior. One gal. oil will do the interior if that is your choice.

Options

  • Hinged front seat with two Southco flush latches.  $150
  • Box for under front seat (Marine Plywood)              $100                                  
  • Sliding Rowers seat                                                 $150
  • Rear seat (behind rowers seat) fan style                $100
  • Rear seat rowers style mounts on rear two ribs     $250
  • Polypropylene Bottom; this consists of a 1/4" Meranti bottom, 1/2" Polypropylene Honeycomb to bond to plywood and additional epoxy for bonding. This still needs to have fiberglass over it. The advantage to this bottom is it is lighter and it gives you a 3/4” bottom with 1/2" of material between the fiberglass and the wood for greater protection from deep scratches.             $350

Tools needed

  • 3” C clamps; At least 6 more is better
  • 5” C clamps; At least 4
  • 9” Deep reach C clamps; not absolutely necessary but three of these will make things easier.
  • Drill/driver and #1 & #2 square drive bits as well as drill bits
  • #6 & #8 counter sinks
  • Belt sander and coarse belt
  • R.O. Sander and assorted grits of sand paper
  • Sawzall or jig saw
