Building a CLC Kit From Plans
If you, or someone you know, are interested in building a boat from scratch, have access to some basic tools, as well as a can-do attitude, a Chesapeake Light Craft plans and manual package may be exactly what you are looking for.
Thousands of amateur (and professional) boatbuilders have started from scratch with CLC plans and manuals and built show-quality boats. Boat plans and manuals have come a long way since the sketchy blueprints of the 1950s, but not many have gone as far as CLC. The packages don't just include scaled drawings and/or full size patterns, most include an elaborate step-by-step shop manual that walks you through every step from sourcing materials to applying varnish.
A typical CLC instruction manual, with step-by-step photos and diagrams from start to finish.
Just take the Northeaster Dory as an example;
- A roll of paper over 50 feet long, 3 feet wide, with full-sized patterns for every single part.
- A 178-page spiral bound manual with hundreds of step-by-step photos, details for multiple sailing rigs, and complete finishing guides.
Backing up every set of plans is our support, always free and unlimited.
The Northeaster Dory’s patterns, the longest sheet is over 17 feet long.
To transfer full-sized patterns to the wood, all you need is an awl or an ice pick. Punch through the paper into the wood, then connect the dots with a pencil and fire up the saw.
All Chesapeake Light Craft plans and manual packages are 20% off until midnight Sunday 16 December 2018 (conditions apply, see Special).
