Oxford rowing Shell

I'm considering purchasing the Oxford Rowing Shell kit from Chesapeake Light Craft. I was wondering if anyone has built this kit, and how it performs. Please respond by e-mail Thanks

Stephen, I'm currently in the process of building my Oxford shell from CLC. It's been a three year process as I am a full-time student. I plan to install the deck boards soon. I'm very pleased thus far with how my shell has come together. The stitch-n-glue method works great. However, I never expected to be sanding this much - I'm sure it will pay off.

P.S. Let the epoxy fillets dry before taping them with fiberglass.
