Flounder Bay offers several different types of boat kits: canoes, prams, dories, dinghies and wherries. Canoe and pram kits include “Puzzle-boat Kits” that fit together like a puzzle
– pieces press together and glue with epoxy putty. The pram is 8' long with a 4' beam. The canoe is 13' 3“ with a 32” beam. A sailing package option is available for the pram.

Because of the puzzle-like configuration of the kit, the canoe, for example, ships in a box that is only about 2 ½' x 4' x 6”. Puzzle boat kits are shipped complete, including parts cut to shape, supplies and most of the tools needed. According to the kit manufacturer, all you supply is a hammer and the final paint.
Flounder Bay Boat Lumber is located in Anacortes, Washington.

Dear Erica & Bob,
I want to compliment you and your staff on the Coisine Wherry design and instructional builders guide. You are to be commended on complete, straight forward, and thorough instructions that were provided in the kit.
You were more than correct in describing the wonderful rowing qualities of the wherry. The boat has delightful manners both in flat waters (where she excels) and in the open ocean.

The Clancy boat I built for my nine year old grand-daughter was completed last fall and launching will be in the spring after she has had some sailing lessons at the Washington Sailing Marina.
The Clancy jig I built has gone up to New London, Conn. with my nephew Eric. His daughters saw my Clancy under construction when they were and they are in hopes that Eric will build one for them.
