A sweetheart of a boat that's easy to build. The BULL'S-EYE is an ideal first time boatbuilding project and a great way to get into boating.
The BULL'S-EYE utilizes Fast-G Stitch and Glue construction; the plywood planking is cut from standard 4' x 8' panels, assembled flat on the ground, and folded to form the boat. A pattern is furnished for virtually all contoured parts. More than 25 full-size patterns, including planking. Just lay the patterns over the wood, transfer to the wood, and saw to shape. No complex grids or tedious layouts from dimensions are required with Glen-L Fast-G construction.
The BULL'S-EYE is versatile, easy to row, and adapts readily to a small outboard. Graduate to sail with the simple free sanding cat rig, or for a more lively craft, use the fully stayed sloop rig. The traditionalist may prefer the classic sprit rig with wood spars that can be carried inside the boat for portage.
Why delay? The water's waiting and now is the time to start.

"Building the Bull's-Eye has been a great experience. The quality of the drawings and plans is fantastic. If you take your time and exam the plans, patterns and instruction documents, the build is quite straight forward. The photos in the documentation, coupled with the information provided on your website and from other fellow builders certainly provides a support environment where anyone can build a boat with confidence. Thanks to everyone in your organization." Mark Chadwick - Mississauga, Ontario Canada Click here to view Mark's photos
Bull's-Eye Builders Speak Out:
"I wish to thank you for helping make a long time dream of building my own boat a reality. I have sent along a few pictures, as you can see from the images, it is a Bull's-Eye sailing skiff. I stuck fairly close to the design details from your plans, but with some variation to the detail on the thwart... found your plans and instructions to be very easy to follow and understand.

"Here's a few shots of my completed 10 month project. It was my first attempt at stitch and glue but I was able to overcome my over cautious concerns with the procedure. I was particularly impressed with the accuracy of your patterns and plans. Best regards," Herb Strom, BC Canada Click here to view Herb's photos
