Build-your-own boat with friends, and family
Skiffs that are snap to build thanks to the Tab-n'-Lock System of construction: no strongback, no fussy alignment of parts, no problems!
The 10' Compass Skiff was designed utilizing the tab-n-lock construction method used in all the easy-to-build kits, making the kit practically build itself.
Over 40 have been built and for good reason: the EBDS is beautiful, classic, and easy to build. The EBDS is a nimble and light boat that sails and rows like a dream.
The Caravelle is the larger sister to the Echo Bay. She is designed for tandem rowing and has been remodeled for sailing, as well. If you want tandem rowing, this is the best option.
The GIS is a great boat that I continue to love sailing every season. Sail it fast, row it, sail-&-oar, camp-cruise...it is versatile and high performance and a joy to own. Designed by Michael Storer and kits by Chase Small Craft.
