This gives me a total in the neighbourhood of $1,800 Cdn.  I might have missed a few receipts but not too many.  This is a lot lower than usual costs but I believe that a lot of that was to do with my choice of regular plywood and polyester resin.   If you want to start an argument among home boat builders, that is one of the sore topics.  Many people believe you need to use marine plywood and epoxy resins.   Hopefully I'm not too wrong.

DISCLAIMER: Because the construction of any boat is dependent on factors of materials and craftsmanship that are beyond my control, I can accept no responsibility for any item constructed based on information found on this web-site.
