This Canadian says $600 to build an S16 at the Woodenboat Show? Only $600! Really? Last boat I built was for a friend and it cost me about a grand all up for materials for a Chesapeake 18. took me forever and two weeks to build between work and move house and a little altercation between me on foot and a car. ('Nuther story, don't wanna tell it here.) Paddled it myself and it don't need a rudder, it has one as friend insisted he couldn't paddle a straight line to save his life. I think he'll be pleased with the skill he thought he had not.
Yeah I want a Sassafras 16! You bet. Question; should I buy plans to build said boat? I did for the C18, worth it for the detail.
