    Default Goat island skiff materials list

    I'm trying to price out a goat island skiff before I buy the plans to see if I can afford it. I know it takes 6 sheets of plywood, 6 mm, only counting the boat, not a trailer, sails, a motor, or oars, what other materials would I need and how much epoxy and paint?

    I suggest you contact the designer - http://www.storerboatplans.com - I'm sure he could provide some guidance. The materials list is included in the plans, but he might be able to give you a rough idea without buying the plans. There is also a page specifically for the GIS -http://www.storerboatplans.com/GIS/GISplan.html.

    thanks Orbb!

    Even more useful can be to ask on the Goat Island Skiff group on Facebook.

    It's got a cross range of people from many regions around the world.

    I could probably build that boat for between $400 and $2500AU, depending on what materials I purchased and where I bought them. If the boat won't live on the water and spending little is important, you have to be really careful or a cheap project will quickly become an expensive one. If you ask on this forum about budget materials you will likely be deterred from using anything but the best. If its meant to be a cheap project keep it that way. If you need to sell her to fund your next project remember that you will never get your money back for materials, let alone time. Good luck with it!
