· Bill of Materials and Assembly Instructions printed on 8.5" x 11" [21.6 x 28]
· Full scale patterns for parts that would be more difficult to draw.

· 15+ additional pages of details and tips on hull assembly including:
-Constructing and using a simple drill jig for perfect hole spacing.
-Using a spacer method for perfectly aligned hull panels.
-Constructing and installing deck hatches.
-Installing accessories such as pad eyes, foot braces, etc.
