difference, it has 5 watertight compartments and a reinforced
mid section a 6' 6" long cockpit that you either paddle or
row from. With the dagger board and rudder up it draws 4"
fully laden. Fast under oars and fun to sail and with clear interior
you can even sleep full length aboard, ideal expedition and camping
boat. Great family project ! You provide the the 4 sheets of 4
or 6 mm and a single sheet of 8 or 9 mm marine or exterior WBP
plywood some small section Spruce or Douglas fir for the stringers.
