A frame kit includes the frames that run across the boat, the stem, the transom panel and the transom framing. These pre-cut components set up the shape of the boat and allow the builder to approach the project with confidence. The wood is select and better cypress, a very decay resistant boat building wood, and the transom panel is AB fir marine plywood. Longitudinal framing, such as the keel, stringers and chines, is not included. Longitudinal framing is dimensional and can be readily cut by the builder. The plans and patterns are included.
