The Strike 16 is very easy to build with a stitch and glue hard chine hull and flat panel ply decks.
CLICK HERE for a study plan,(in pdf format). I suggest you also download the Strike 18 study plans as this has more drawings which will help you see the building sequence (even though a few details are obviously different)
Plans for the main hull include the Quattro 14 plans so that you can build the complete boat yourself. You can use the rig, rudders, deck gear etc from a second hand beach cat. Either a 14ft beach cat, or even a 15-16 ft beach cat if you normally sail in lightwinds, sheltered water conditions.
Plans are available only as download plans in pdf format.
The photos below show one of the first Strike 16's sold. It is being built by a home builder, the photos show progress made less than three weeks after receiving the building plans.
