      Construction cost for this Ebihen 15 was close to $11,500 for materials and supplies. This did not include my cost for the outboard, trailer, and tools needed for construction. Your cost will vary based on selection of hardware and variable lumber cost. It can be built for less of course as I picked pretty expensive hardware. I also duplicated a lot of ‘sanding’ effort during the course of construction as a new builder so I was not efficient with my supply cost. Overall though, it is a large boat for the 15 ft length and expenses will be higher then typical. As an example my other 14 foot boat, a duck punt (built in 3 weeks) was around $500 for materials, supplies, sail rigging, and portable dolly.

      I see you passed through Portland in November. You may have been on the Columbia the very same day I was out sailing the Ma Cher’ie a newly built Ebihen 16. Feel free to contact me directly for the story and photos.

      Hi Stan, A beautiful boat ,and nice to see it sailing in Long beach. I sailed along side of you at Lake Havasu when you got T Boned. Ouch!! I was sailing my SF Pelican Bad Bird that day.
      I sail a lot out of Long Beach as i live in Whittier which is 15 min to launch ramp. If you want company on a sail someday i could bring my new boat (simplicity 14) and cruise up the bay.

        Hi Rodger,

        Yes I remember you and Bad Bird. It was a great week in Havasu, even with Alice Gale getting roughed up. I got her nicely patched a d continue to sail locally in Newport Beach and Long Beach. I will provide you a heads up when we sail again.

    Great job on the video! So glad to see a Vivier boat on the West coast being used. They are delightful boats.
