Purchasing Plans and Kits
We like to keep things simple at B&B. As a small operation we like to work one-on-one with each of our customers. If you’d like order a kit or plan for one of our designs, please contact us by phone or email. We would be happy to let you know the latest info on our kits and answer any questions you may have.
Every day we get more requests for new designs and we do our best to keep up. We constantly receive feedback from our builders and use this to improve our products. Above all, we strive to give each builder the best experience possible. Click below to jump to current prices.
What we offer:
Basic Plans: Our plans are printed to order in house and shipped directly to you. When you order your plan from B&B you don’t just get a plan, you get a promise from us to support you and help you see your project to completion.The majority of our plans are printed on 11″ x 17″ (tabloid) size paper. Larger or more complex designs will come on larger 24″ x 36″ (ARCH D) size sheets. Plans sets are complete detailed instructions that provide all necessary information to complete the boat. Please be sure to specify the exact plan you want when ordering – if you want a nested dinghy, please be clear – they are not the same plan pack as the standard versions. For our non-USA customers: We send metric** plans as the standard. If you prefer to have imperial measurements please specify that in your order. **Note that a few of our plans have not yet been translated into metric.
Full size templates: Our powerboat plans and our more complex designs such as the Core Sound 17 and 20 Mark 3 have been carefully nested into full size mylar templates which are printed on 24″ wide translucent sheets. Though it is more expensive, mylar is ideal for large patterns because it is impervious to humidity, tearing, and is dimensionally stable. The full size templates, allow any builder to transfer the exact part shape directly to the building material without any lofting
Assembly Manuals: For our more complex designs such as the Core Sound 17 and 20 Mark 3 we are working hard to develop an assembly manual complete with detailed step by step procedures and dozens of annotated drawings. In this case, the assembly manual is a more natural companion to the full size templates or parts kit because many of the meticulous dimensioned drawings are no longer needed. Available assembly manuals can be download from our downloads page for a modest fee.
Shipping: Plans are shipped via USPS Priority mail unless otherwise requested: We will insure USA delivery only if you request Priority or Express with insurance for replacement service at an additional fee. Special mailing applications may cost more, please contact us to verify costs for Express, Registered, Certified, Insured or other special needs. Multiple plans cost less sent in one package and we will pass the savings on to you. All USA plans are shipped Priority mail and 11X17 format plans will ship flat rate. Template plans and rolls will be charged based on the plans (weight) and the the zip code.
All International 11X17 paper plans will be shipped Priority International (to most countries). This service is about 6-12 working days depending on the country. For faster (3-6 working days) delivery we use International Express, with a price quote per your country on request. International template (rolls) plans are shipped Global Priority or Express (highly recommended), prices variable: will be per the weight of the package and the country to which it is shipped. Some International plan packages require a customs declaration.
Note: If your country has unreliable postal service, We would suggest that you upgrade to Express mail. There are some countries that the US Postal service will ONLY allow us to ship to via Express, or by courier (USPS Global Express Guaranteed delivery which is contracted through Federal Express (FedEX).
Be aware, a small number of items do get lost, and if we find yours missing and was insured, we will replace it for free. Most are lost outside of the US. Please asses your postal system to determine if you need to pay for insurance.
