MMM produce superb quality hulls, plans and fittings to give you a choice of full kit or semi scratch built. I built their lady t from a hull and plans and was amazed at how good the gear it. Oh and if you need help, Brian at MMM is a very helpful chap.

Have just finished the Rowangarth which is the sister to Eldergarth same hull and fittings just a few superstructure changes. I got the template pack which was a great help as this was my first boat build. All went together well the fittings are much the same as other manufacturers just need a clean up. I started on the hull first. If I can give you any help when you get the kit just send me a PM and I will do my best also have photos of the build.

Good Luck
