Lorimer 445 Base Hull


Lorimer 445 Base Hull

A durable, easy to build base hull in taped-seam plywood, this one is a great kid/parent introduction to boatbuilding. The Lorimer hull can be used as the starting point for a wide variety of creative one-off boats, including a cute but powerful tugboat and a 14th-century galleon that looks authentic in almost every way- save for the 10 hp outboard.
