When the builder opens the Pre-Drilled Zenith 1450 Amphib. float kit you get your skins all pre-cut and pre-drilled..saves a ton of work for me vs. the Parts Only kit. This is the 12 ft nose skin & 3 1/2 heel skin with all rivet holes pre-drilled and the holes for pump outs / float lifting brackets holes drilled.
Note - That Zenith is thoughtful enough to include a work table in the kit. That is the shipping crate flipped on its side to provide both a table and under table parts storage area. When time comes that a 12 ft table is required...Zenith included a sheet of plywood as the crate lid that transforms to a work table extension.
