Ask the ordinary boat-builder how much he will charge to build you a fishing punt and he will probably surprise you with the extent of his demands. To remonstrate with him is useless. He enlarges upon the expense of material, the skill and knowledge required and the time occupied, and you will no doubt come to the conclusion that the craft is beyond your pocket.  Yet the building of a fishing punt is no difficult matter to anyone with a taste for amateur carpentering, and the cost will not exceed a few pounds, which will cover every possible item for a good punt 14 ft. long.
