Re: Cost estimation pleas

The plans give you a materials list. For how much epoxy to calculate ask CLC for what they ship with a kit. $40 is ok here in Portland Oregon for marine okume (actually $42) but may not be where ever you are located. There was a thread a while back that discussed what a boat built from plans cost vs a kit. As I recall its was about 50 - 60% of a kit price but could vary by location all the way up to or more than a kit. I would think that your $350 would cover the boat wood, epoxy and glass but maybe not the seat and foot braces or other stuff. Do not forget to figure in paint, varnish and sandpaper plus epoxy supplies like mixing containers, rollers and brushes etc.
