KTL inspired American built duck punt finished

Stan Rich has finished his American Duck Punt and he has done a great job – the boat looks very traditional. He has also talked about the costs of the build and the choices of timber

I am sure he will help with advice if anyone else wants to have a go at building one

he has made a little trailer out of plastic pipes – looks very effective to me

 

here are some snaps

 

 

 

this is what he says

 also found a pretty good deal for 25 yards of 4 oz cloth from Fiberglasssite.com. ($100.00)  I only used 4 yards so I have plenty left for my next boat project.   I purchased my wood from Home Depot (3 sheets of 5.2 mm SandePly, 1 sheet of MDO for building frames,  6  8 ft  2×4′s for jig, and cedar fencing that I ripped for finished bulkhead framing and gunwales.  All told I think I spent less then $150 for wood that I needed.  I found enough left over Oak and Douglas Fir for the misc pieces requiring strength.  I also had a few feet of odd sized 10mm marine ply that I used for framing the floatation compartments, and mast thwart.   I used left over oak for the mast step, bow stem, and gunwale rubbing strakes, and douglas fir for the row chocks.    I also needed a new gallon of West System Epoxy  ($150), using about 3/4 of a gallon on the punt.  A gallon and gray porch paint from Home Depot ($25.oo), using half a gallon.

      Chris,

      the plans and some films of the build are on the website here -= in the section over to the right

      build it quick, build it light – they are a box that sails
