We now carry heavyweight 9 oz. Dacron as an option on all our boats!

Our standard 3.7 oz. Dacron is a tough, durable fabric, but many customers ask about even tougher options. The 9 oz. Dacron is incredibly strong, takes all finishes well and only adds about 2 pounds to a 14' boat.

Thank you for your interest in lightweight build-at-home boats.
