LIST OF MATERIALS FOR HULL & DECK

The following list of materials is approximate and intended only for calculation of approximate costs. It is not intended to be used for the ordering of exact quantities of materials for construction.

Lengths and areas are based on the actual amounts remaining in the vessel without any allowance for building stocks, temporary framing, bracing etc nor for wastage in cutting to size and shape as required. Such wastage is dependent on the skill of the builder.
