  1. Alan from B&B just got back to me. I'll document this here is case anyone is looking for the information in the future. The sitting headroom in the Core Sound 20 mk3 is either 35 1/8" or 37 1/8". Apparently you can lower the benches by two inches by cutting them down to provide the extra headroom.
  2. Thanks for all the responses. Yes I should probably get a shipping quote before ruling that option out completely. It seems that building from a kit is highly preferred and would likely contribute to the overall success of the project. Alan from B&B responded to my previous email and gave me the sitting headroom measurement (33 1/2") for the Core Sound 17 mk3. At my height that would be a tight squeeze and I couldn't really sit without hunching over. I am still hoping to get the same measurement (from bench to ceiling) for the Core Sound 20 mk3 either from Alan or someone on the forum.
  3. Hello, I'm interested in the core sound 17 & 20 mk3 designs. I wonder how realistic it is for a home builder to build the boats successfully with plans only (no kit). I'm located in Canada so it might be cost prohibitive for me to have a kit shipped up here. I especially wonder about the "puzzle piece" joints that I see in the finished boats. These look like they would be quite tough to cut out accurately with a jigsaw. I'd also like to know what the sitting headroom is in both the 17 & 20 mk3. I'm a tall guy (6'5") and based on the core sound 17 mk3 tour video I am convinced that there is room for me to sleep aboard but I have not been able to find any concrete information on how much headroom there is between the seat and the ceiling of the cabin. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Alan
