BBCo Pilot Kit

BBCo Pilot Kit


Making parents and grandparents look like legends.
The BBCo Pilot Kit is a flat-packed, DIY project for the more serious wooden-boat builder. Inspired by Charles Napier Hemy's beautiful painting of 'The Pilot' in stormy seas, this pointed-bow boat is much bigger and sturdier than the BBCo Classic Rowboat, designed to withstand bigger swells and seating up to six people. To build your own boat, all you need to do is follow the step-by-step instructions.

Silicon Bronze nails
Two-part epoxy glue
Cups and stirrers for preparing the glue
Six tubes of Sikaflex premium marine adhesive/sealant
Disposable gloves

Caulking Gun
