Whats in a Paper Jet 14 kit?

The white american poplar next to some kiln dry teak is the timber part of the Paper Jet 14 kit.
To start with,the most complex amount of CNC cutting in any of our kits,any person who wants to cut this lot himself is welcome to it,there is no ways you can cut so close as to get things right,at least with our CNC works,you  start with your build with the panels cut as they should be,thats all six sheets of 4mm Ockume marine plys to BS 1088 standard.We supplied the first three Paper Jet 14 kits ever made,this includes the designers own boat,hull number 001 and now sailing in Virgina,USA.The designers build manual is a masterpiece by the way.
