This is the cost of the CNC plywood kit used as a deposit on your kit order. We will be in touch shortly to discuss your order. Shipping is billed when the kit is complete. For shipping quotes just send us a message and we will be in tough asap.
The basic kit consists of all the plywood parts needed to complete the boat as well as cnc cut building cradles for attaching to the building cradle frame. The solid stock is NOT included in this kit but is purchased locally by the builder to complete the standard kit. This includes the wood for the cradle frame, side stringers, gunwales, keel, centerboard, and cleats needed to stiffen the plywood structure. We don't include these parts because they would require unecessary scarf joints for the builder to assemble.
This kit faithfully produces a perfectly developed Core Sound 15, not a simplified or modified version. Our kits are manufactured to extremely tight tolerances. Instead of plain cut plywood panels, your kit will come with various joining methods which will make it much easier and much faster to assemble. The plywood for the hull panels and longitudinal bulkheads are joined using machined finger scarfs which produce a simple and effective plywood joint. Wire holes for stitching are pre-drilled for you. Bulkheads, both transverse and longitudinal, are tenoned into position. Stringer positions are “CNC-drawn” onto the side panels and bulkheads are cut to accommodate the stringers. Pictured (above) is an assembled hull ready for glass taping the seams and adding the interior.
All plywood is BS1088 okume ply. The pictures shows the machined dovetails in the side and bottom at the bow which gives perfect alignment during assembly.
