Klondike-FG Bill of Materials

The following material listing is an estimate of the materials required to build the basic hull of the vessel. The material listing is intended to serve as a general guide only and should not be used to purchase materials until the various options and alternatives have been checked to the plans and to the work. The hull construction materials are based on the square footage of the hull and may vary somewhat depending on the materials used and how they are utilized. The figures listed include an overage factor, however it is probable that more materials may be required due to waste, defects, sizes and types of material available, etc. The listing does not include materials for the cabin structure or joinerywork due to the many possible variations in both the plans as well as the owner's desires. In all cases, check the plans and instructions for options.
