Had a fabulous time building this stitch and glue kit from Pygmy Boats. About 80 hours which I've already matched with time on the water, from Cronulla to Wollongong, and Flinder's Point to Botany Bay, to name a bit of it. Looking forward to the warming of the water this year to actually fishing rather than building. Worth the effort, ordered from the States, made in Australia, fishing in Sydney.

Welcome tunahound.

Might be better if you post the pic rather than a zip archive - my version of firefox isn't letting me open the archive.

I'm always impressed by you boatbuilders. Hope to see you on the water this summer

Unfortunately, due to the change in ownership of this web site and the lack of response by the owners to my requests to remove my email address from all administrative-level notifications and functionality, I have decided to remove my posts on AKFF. Thank you for the great times, the fantastic learning experiences and the many many fish. If you are desperate for the old content of this particular post, it is available below base64 encoded and bzip2 compressed.

Hi Barry,
Ordered directly from Pygmy Boats, and delivered to my door in Sydney for around $1100.00 AUD. Worth it, yes. Spent many, many hours in the Sea of Cortez in an Osprey double which, unfortunately, had to leave behind in California a couple of years ago. The Coho is every bit as seaworthy. It weighs in around 18 or 19 kilos with the two pack color coat which I've added for UV protection here in Aus. Here's the link if you wish to browse:

Fine set of craft. Five of them in my family if that's any indication of customer satisfaction.

Cheers
