Shellback Sailing Kit

Our pre-cut kits are cut by computer-guided routers to provide you with 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 now included.

You get all the parts needed, 4-sided spars (you'll shape and taper) all fastenings, rudder hardware, oarlocks and sockets, plans, instructions, and rigging line & 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
Rudder Mounting Hardware
Belaying Pin
5 sheets of plans
