    Default Lutra Laker?

    Anybody here built one of these? Thoughts / Opinions as a home-built freighter option for light duty bear/fish river trips?

    When someone builds one I volunteer to be balast for the front of the boat. Looks like a quality boat.
    It ain't about the # of pounds of meat we bring back, nor about how much we spent to go do it. Its about seeing what no one else sees.

    Default thanks for the offers

    Thanks guys - It really does seem from the photos and description to be just about ideal for up here.

    The BOM lists 4 sheets of 1/2", 4 sheets of 1/4", and 4 sheets of 3/8" ply in order to complete the hull, bulkheads and seats. Winging it, at $40 to $60 per sheet, that puts me in the neighborhood of $600 or maybe $700 for plywood costs.

    The designer sells pre-cut, pre-scarfed wood kit for $1690, plus shipping. He did not provide a shipping estimate to AK, but I'd figure its likely at least another $200 or so.

    This would be my 2nd boat project, I built a CLC 17 from a pre-cut kit a few years back. I think if I pull the trigger on this one, I'll just buy the plans and pick up the plywood locally as I go.

    I've also been looking at the kits over on bateau.com Seems to be a good group of guys on that forum as well. They don't have anything quite like the Lutra, but they do have a few interesting models.

    The main consideration is our move from Eagle River into Anchorage. Once I know how much construction space I have to work with I'll be able to choose a model.
