The complete FS14_LS Kit includes all the epoxy supplies and plywood needed to build a complete boat.
The kit includes all the epoxy and fiberglass listed in our Bill of Materials. Our MarinEpoxy Resin is a high-performance marine resin specially formulated for our building method. It has a low viscosity and is ideal for fiberglass lamination. It wets the fiberglass evenly and fast. The mixing ratio is simple: one volume of hardener for two volumes of resin. To make putty and glue, mix the resin with the fillers supplied in the kit. Add filler to reach a ketchup-like viscosity for glue, add more fillers to a peanut butter consistency for fillets and putty. For information on how to use resin and fiberglass please visit our technical support web site bateau2.com.
Here is what is included:
- FS14_LS Plans included at no extra charge
- Complete FS14_LS CNC Kit
- Epoxy resin kit: 4.5 Gallons total
- Woodflour: 3lb.
- Biaxial tape 6 oz. 6" wide: 75 yards
- Biaxial fabric 12 oz. 50" wide : 19 yards
The kit is cut on a computer controlled router system (CNC numeric machining) for extremely accurate and precise panel creation. All parts are cut from BS 1088 Okoume plywood to the designer's specifications. Each panel is cut leaving tabs between the piece and the waste plywood. This allows for safer shipping leaving small tabs for the customer to cut out, much like taking apart the pieces of models when we were kids.
More Supplies, Refills and Custom Kits: Our kits contain enough resin and fiberglass to completely finish your boat. The quantities are based not only on our BOM calculations but also on years of experience and feedback from our builders. In many cases, we supply too much resin because it is more economical to buy a large quantity. We also include a 15% waste and you should not run out of resin, However, first time builders may need more resin. Some may want to fiberglass more than what we specify or double the layers. In those cases, more resin may be needed. We sell extra resin and hardener separately at our online store BoatBuilderCentral.com. At BoatBuilderCentral.com you will also find accessories, tools, paint and everything that you may need to customize your kit.
Foam Option: Our plans show optional foam. To make this boat unsinkable we recommend a 2 gallon kit of our Coast Guards approved buoyancy foam. Each gallon expands to an average of 4 cubic feet. One cubic foot provides 62 lbs. of positive flotation.
