He tells you what to do and when your done he will tell you what to do next, so he keeps you in line. I had everyone from my grandfather all the way down to my daughters to help build it. It was worth every penny. They send everything home with you and you complete it at your house. I have 14 coats of sealer and varnish. It took some time!

They were great people and we fully enjoyed it.


Here's the link to their website.

I am good friends with the son of the owner. The Cundiff's are great people, very friendly and know their woodies. My father-in-law has footed behind one of their old restored woodies... same year he was born 1960!

It wouldn't be hard. It has been coast guard approved, but I don't plan on getting them. We only use it in coves or in the no wake zone and so far no problem with the wildlife agency.

Where do you boat?

Where about in KY, and how much, if I may so boldly ask. Used to live near Danville/Harrodsburg. Older brother and his family are moving down to Bowling Green area and I think this would be a blast. I'd like to recommend it to him.

-$2995 for the weekend build, and they even feed you.
-$65 for the plans alone

Poke around on the link jgraham gave long enough and you'll find pics of their build. At least I saw the Daddy's Girls photo.

I think the weekend build would be fun with the kids.

If we lived on a lake, we'd do it in a minute. For us however, it would mean towing two boats to the lake.

Sunken boat in Antartica. Though the pictures doesn't look like it, they say it is under a layer of ice.
