  • 6' = $95   
  • 7' = $105 
  • 7-1/2' = $115 


The prices for kits and finished boats include white sails. These prices are for people building from plans.

A 90 minute low-budget opportunity to view boats under construction, being rigged (how to set up the sails and tension the boom), and sailing under various conditions.

Although not essential, this video will provide useful visual descriptions helpful to novice kit builders—$20.00 post-paid. Free paper catalog included with video orders.


Plans feature detailed step-by-step instructions, and come with a copy of the construction video for that boat.

The construction videos are meant to provide instruction for the plans builder (if you are a kit builder, the Demonstration Video is a better choice).
