DO YOU AND A FEW FRIENDS, AS A SCHOOL OR A GROUP FEEL LIKE BUILDING A BOAT FOR A CHALLENGE  SO YOU CAN ENJOY USING IT OUT ON THE WATER WHEN COMPLETED ?        

I WILL GLADLY TRAVEL TO YOUR LOCATION FOR THE DURATION OF SUCH PROJECT . A FULL LIST OF MATERIALS AND TOOLS NEEDED TO COMPLETE THE JOB IN A SET TIME WILL BE FORWARDED IN ADVANCE .THE WORK DETAILS AND DURATION ARE DIFFERENT FOR EACH TYPE OF PROJECT ( VENUE INDOORS IDEALLY )

AT BEST A MINIMUM OF FOUR PEOPLE ARE NEEDED TO COMPLETE A PROJECT IN THE ESTIMATED TIME ( USUALLY ONE WEEK OR SIX FULL WORKING DAYS). MY CHARGES ARE     € 180.00 PER DAY ( PLUS A LOCAL ACCOMODATION OR B&B IF THIS IS NEEDED WHEN THE VENUE IS TOO FAR FOR ME TO COMMUTE ON A DAILY BASIS ) MATERIALS ARE NOT INCLUDED .BY THE WAY, IT ‘S AS EASY TO WORK WITH EIGHT PERSONS AND BUILD TWO BOATS SIMULTANEOUSLY THAN WITH FOUR . THE INSTRUCTIONS AND DEMOS TAKE JUST AS LONG . I HAVE PLENTY OF EXPERIENCE IN TEACHING ADULTS AND CHILDREN. GARDA VETTING WILL BE DONE ON REQUEST .                     THE RELATED CD AND MANUAL ACCOMPANYING THE PROJECT CAN BE RE/USED AFTERWARDS TO BUILD MORE OF THE SAME CRAFT AT NO EXTRA COST OR ROYALTIES .
