|The kit includes 38 precut plywood pieces and ships in four boxes.
The company's BBCo Classic Rowboat Kit($1,610) includes a 17-step, 22-page manual, 38 cut-to-fit plywood parts, stainless steel screws, square copper nails, two-part epoxy glue, cups and stirrers (for preparing the glue), three tubes of Sikaflex marine adhesive-sealant, and disposable gloves. You'll have to supply your own sandpaper, primer, undercoat, paint, varnish, rope, six-foot-long oars with rowlocks (available from Balmain)— and a pen to sign the safety disclaimer. The manufacturer estimates that the 8-foot-long, 120-pound boat takes a few weekends to put together.
