I thought $8,500 was a lot for a plywood kit, but I see that includes full carbon rig, posh sails, deck fittings...

A new laser is $10 or $12k isn't it? a Waszp $20k, one of those Olympic skiff things more than an old keel boat.

So $8,500 actually sounds very attractive, and has got me thinking...

Nothing as rewarding as building your own boat.

Where are these being raced? Fleet numbers etc?

Hard to believe Dan leech would get target weight wrong. He has a bit of experience designing and building skiffs.

The designer/builder of the other boat has considerably more experiance.

No doubt Mr. Roper has plenty of experience.

Will be interesting to see.
