Building or Buying a Frosty

Building a Wooden Frosty

The Cape Cod Frosty is built from two 4'x8' sheets of 1/4" plywood using the "stitch and glue" method of construction. A minimum of tools and wood working skills are needed to build a decent boat. A skilled wood worker should be able to put the boat together in a single weekend. Many articles from back issues of the class newsletter are available that describe the building process in greater detail. For additional information email Tom Leach, the designer directly: Saquatucket@hotmail.com

Fiberglass Frostys

Fiberglass Frostys are class legal as long as they are built from molds approved by the designer, Thomas Leach. To date, only boats built by Sailpower,Corp., and Star Marine, or from kits by Star Marine are designer approved. (Sailpower and Star are no longer building the Frosty, but there are some used ones around.)

Used Boats

Used Frostys are readily available in areas that have or have had active fleets. Try our used boat ads here on the site, or contact a Fleet Captain near you.
