Cape Cutter 19
Lapstrake Plywood


The following list of materials is approximate and intended for calculation of approximate costs. We offer no guarantees of accuracy.

The list is for all timber in the construction of hull, deck and interior, including building stocks, temporary bracing etc. Allowance has been made in the quantities for wastage, with the exception of the building stocks and chipboard, which are net.

The plywood quantity is our estimate and will vary from builder to builder due to differences in efficiency. Simon Ballantine built his Cape Cutter 19 in UK, using our optional Mylar patterns for hull skin panels. He used 23 sheets of plywood to complete his boat.
