She features rugged construction that is easy to build. You decide on the arrangement; pilothouse, express cruiser, fish or work. She is a versatille boat for your enjoyment. Tack and tape construction is 1/2" plywood and epoxy over plywood frames and bulkheads. Plans include: materials, lines, panel layout, construction, and arrangement.
