How to Order

In many cases, customers like to pick up their kits at the shop. It saves the expense of shipping by motor freight as well as the cost of crating. They also find a visit to the shop will answer a lot of questions, and seeing the finished product helps spur them on. If coming to the shop isn't practical, we can ship anywhere in the world, by motor freight or container. Kits shipped this way are packed in sturdy plywood and 2x2 crates. We charge $100 for the crate; shipping is paid on arrival. Call us for shipping costs for kits shipped to your area. The crating charge is only for when we ship the kit to you in a crate by motor freight, NOT when you pick the kit up at the shop. Call us to discuss what sort of vehicle etc. you need to haul a kit back home. We've actually sent one customer off to Montana with a 16' driftboat kit in and on top of a Volkswagen Jetta.

When purchased separately from a kit, accessories are shipped by mail or UPS. When purchased with a kit which is to be shipped, the cost of shipping is included in the total shipping cost of the kit. It is by far cheaper, pound per pound, to ship accessories in the same crate with a boat kit. Unfortunately, UHMW skid shoes can only be shipped by truck, which is often too expensive to be practical when shipped by itself. We encourage you to purchase the UHMW when you buy your kit if you plan to have the kit shipped to you. Doing so will save you added shipping charges later.

Payment can be made by check , money order, VISA or MasterCard. If you order by mail, please include your shipping address (not PO Box) if you desire shipment by UPS. Always include your home phone number (or work number if we can reach you during business hours). Make checks to Tatman Wooden Boats.
