The Honker is a light weight shallow draft vessel that with a 60 horse outboard, can race along at 30 knots or can idle for hours while trolling for salmon or bottom fish. We can cook the fresh caught fish each night for our meal and all that cooking could be done safely on a small propane barbecue carried on board the boat. Each night the Honker could be beached and the anchor rode carried up the beach and tied off to an accommodating tree or large rock. The split cockpit of our own Honker allows us to carry all camping gear and clothing in a waterproof, lockable, separate compartment. Room for the three of us and our fishing gear would be easily accommodated in the aft cockpit..

The kit is assembled inverted over a computer-cut construction frame that indexes the bulkheads at the proper spacing, paralllel, axially-aligned and level. The hull panels are joined end-to-end with our engineered puzzle splices, avoiding the need for fiddly and difficult-to-align scarphing. From this sturdy foundation, you can be sure that you can build an accurate boat.

The kit includes all the plywood parts required to build this boat. Cloth, epoxy, fasteners and dimensional lumber are also available from us.

The price of a Honker hull kit is $2899. It includes cnc cut panels of BS1088 marine ply, the construction jig, plans and assembly instructions. It is shipped on a 4' x 8' x 14" pallet weighing 950#.

This basic hull kit does not include dimensional lumber as those are best fit on-site. It also does not include cloth or epoxy, we can provide pricing on request.
