Shellback Rowing Kit

Our pre-cut kits are cut by computer-guided routers to provide you with extremely accurate parts. And, the kits come with just about everything needed except the elbow grease. The ladder frame—the “foundation” of the boat—is now included with the kit. It’s pre-slotted, and so slick it goes together in 5 minutes. Nice and rigid, it even includes the molds. Epoxy is also included.

You get all the parts needed, oarlocks and sockets, plans, instructions and hardware. Wood is Sapele, which is the highest grade marine mahogany ply available.

Also included with your kit:
    “How to” book How to Build the Shellback Dinghy
    5 sheets of plans

Not Included: Paint / varnish, oar.

Shipping is between $225 and $425, (continental US), depending on the destination for the kit.

Kits won’t ship for approx. 4 weeks.

We WILL ship the plans and book, which are in-stock now. That will be approximately $8 to $16 shipping.

No Post Office Boxes. Lower 48 states only.
