The complete FS14_LS Kit includes all the epoxy supplies and plywood needed to build a complete boat.
A Silvertip kit is not only much easier to use relative to mixing your own fillers, the products themselves outperform general purpose epoxy and glues, putties, or fairing pastes made by mixing your own fillers.
The SilverTip Marine Epoxy Series from System Three Resins is made up of five, application specific products, designed to make wooden boat building easier and more enjoyable as well as perform better than any other epoxy available today. Gone is the mess and inconsistency of repeated measuring and mixing of powdered fillers. No more blushing and worries about secondary bonding. Our SilverTip kits consist of four products; Laminating Resin, GelMagic adhesive, EZ fillet, and QuickFair.
Here is what is included:
- FS14_LS Plans included at no extra charge
- Complete FS14_LS CNC Kit
- 3 Gallon SilverTip Kit
- 1.5 Quart kit of GelMagic adhesive
- 1.5 Quart kit of EZ Fillet
- 1.5 Quart QuickFair fairing paste
- Biaxial tape 6 oz. 6" wide: 75 yards
- Biaxial fabric 12 oz. 50": 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.
