10' Wherry Row Boat Kit Minus Strongback, Forms and Saddle
Complete 14' Wherry Row Boat
The White Salmon Boat Works team is proud to offer this beautiful row boat in a complete or partial kit form. We take great care building and cutting out each part for this beautiful row boat. White Salmon Boat Works are the only kit builder to supple the solidly built pre-made plywood strongback. We actually construct the strongback, secure the form blocks to the strongback, then we add the forms and gussets. The forms are aligned, fine tune the forms so the strips for a perfect fit. We clearly mark each boat piece before they are disassemble for easy reassembly, the all parts are checked off the parts list before the are boxed for shipping. Another unique item we are the only kit builder is to supply the two sturdy saddles the boat will sit on during the construction of the inside of the boat. As you see this is no easy quick throw it together project. If you live within driving distance of White Salmon, Washington picking up your kit will save considerable amount of money. Another way of saving money is to build the strongback and saddles yourself. This wills save you hundred of dollars in shipping cost. Also I will deduct $500.00 off the full kit price.
