Our frames only kit consists of all the precut frames for the boat.  All frames are cut from Baltic Birch plywood, inside edges are rounded over. They will need a light sanding before being assembled but are otherwise ready to use.


Multi Chine boats are extra.

Keep in mind:
* you will need to cut your own stringers
* fabric for skinning it not included



Frames are not stock items, but are cut once the order is placed. Delivery will depend on the work load in the shop. We usually ship within 7-14 days. You can always email and check on the progress of your frame kit.

I built a Tandem Crayfish after buying a frame kit, fabric and the book on how to build. It was really fun building the frame, which took shape in a short period of time. It was especially satisfying to me because I am a klutz woodworker. Everything fit together thanks to the precise pre-made frames. My stringers, gunwale and keel were made out of cedar. It took several trips to the big box home improvement store to get the lumber I needed and several scarf joints. These weren't pretty, but seemed to do the job. You will need a lot of clamps, so be prepared to beg, borrow and steal. Once finished, I had to make some adjustments to the seats. The boat seems fast, perhaps a little less stable than I was expecting, but it did not take me long to get used to it. I mostly paddle kayaks, but I am loving my P-roe.
