All in all i think the permit would be easier to build, but as far as cost goes, in the end i think they would be very close in cost.

In either case, CALL TO VERIFY AVAILABILITY before you order anything, or pay for it.

as far as the alfa goes, you get a hull, resin appendages (that aren't accurate, i believe rogue subworks sells an upgrade set) and a set of plans.
it is also small and very tight in the stern, getting linkages that work in there is difficult. I don't think it comes with a prop.

if this is important to you, the alfa is a polyester hull, but the permit is epoxy.

I believe Precision Pattern has closed down his shop for the time being, he is moving from kansas to i think montana. until that move is completed, i think everything is in boxes. CALL/EMAIL HIM TO VERIFY THIS.

PS, i have been eyeballing the SSY alfa myself, i think it would be a nice counterpart to the SWM blueback that i have. I just haven't gotten up the gumption to order one.
