I made my own keel and rudder molds. They were intended to be 'cheapies'. I've used mast/gooseneck stubs (one set up for all rigs) to save money.
Plans come with a raised fore deck but to keep it simple I used flat decks. All up with 3 rigs (sails from Housemartin - England) RMG winches etc they have cost around $1000 each.

Should be good fun sailing them - Australian Nationals in January 2013

That's a great price!
Consider additionally, that an RMG is roughly $250, that's a quarter of the build-price just in the winch!
So, $750 for the boat, and 3-rigs

Do let us know how you make out in the Nationals!
