    Boat Value?

    If it were being sold to an individua l, it would be worth more than you could ever get for it. Twice the cost of materials would let you continue building as many as you want but will not leave much for wages though it could keep a retired geezer busy doing something he loves if he can...

    Best Bottom Protection/Maybe?

    Have one bought plan, a DK15 that I may actually build someday. Also want to build a couple of canoes, a 14' Puddleduck SOF and a 16-17 foot cedar stripper. However I think the first will probably be an 8' garvey that I drew up plans for. Made some alterations to the drawings today, am at the...
