The kit for the St Ayles Skiff has been designed by Jordan Boats from the original boat design by Iain Oughtred. Jordan Boats have been manufacturing boat kits since 2003.
The kit design for the St Ayles has been thought through from the outset to produce a beautiful and comparatively easy boat that can be built by people with little or boat building experience. What is required is patience, and a reasonable degree of practical ability. We are particularly lucky here on Seil as we have offers of help from not one but two experienced boatbuilders.
For the most part, the tools required are those found in most keen DIYers toolbox. We are fortunate on Seil in having people eager to help who have an excellent selection of tools.
