With the BBCo Sailboat Kit, you have almost everything you need to catch a wind for adventure.
The kit itself includes the following:
- Detailed plans and informative construction notes
- Precision-cut plywood
- Stainless steel screws

- Silicon-bronze nails
- Two-part epoxy glue
- Cups and stirrers for preparing the glue
- Three tubes of Sikaflex premium marine adhesive/sealant

You’ll need a caulking gun, drill, and hammer, and a few other odds and ends that you’ve probably got sitting around your garage, but all that comes detailed in the instructions. Make sure you read ’em, guys.
