Drift Boat Kit

I have a 16' Don Hill drift boat kit I never got around building and would like it to go to a good home and someone to complete it.  I have had it stored in my garage for over 10 years and moving soon to much smaller place so need to down size my stuff.  The Kit includes all the ribs, transom, bow stem, and a box of hardware.  I also have the instructions but will need to find them.  I can be contacted directly at:

Hello Tom, Greg Hatten gave me a heads up that you had a question about kerfing the bottom of your pram.

We debated if we wanted to kerf on the our new Tubby pram. It's only 8'7" LOA and has quite a rocker. In the end we didn't. It took two people to get it to bend but the fur came around well without a kerf.

If we were to kerf it wouldn't have taken more than three passes with a skill saw and not more than 1/4 deep. Fill the kerf with thickened epoxy before bending into place.

Hey Tom,
The 16' boat I built wasn't a stitch & glue but I didn't need to do any kerfing for the bottom... sorry I can't help you with your question. Randy Dersham is right in the middle of building a short pram - I'll ask him to respond to your question... Good luck. Greg
