|Photograph of our Broadbill 14, illustrates the versatility of this popular design. The Broadbill 14 will easily accommodate 2 adults, a dog, several sacks of decoys with room under the front deck for other necessities. This design was run at the Mercury test center in Placida, Florida and was clocked at 29.7 mph with an 18hp Mercury engine. The handling characteristics and maneuverability of this hull form were excellent. The Broadbill 14 draws only 5" of water which allows it to slip in and out of those shallow hard to get to places.
STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS - Step by step instructions for our boat kits have been designed for those who have never built a boat before. As you can see in the drawing above, each part of the hull is assigned a number, this number in turn is marked on each piece of cypress and marine plywood that is included in the complete boat kit. Using this technique an amateur can easily assemble any Clark Craft complete Boat kit.
FRAME KIT - Includes all side and bottom frames cut from 3/4" solid cypress, transom cut from 3/4" marine grade plywood with cypress framing, the stem cut from 1-1 /2" solid cypress, along with a full set of plans, patterns and instructions to build the Broadbill 14.
