John,
This PuddleDuck was built in 1990, long before thse PuddleDuck Racer stitch and glue boats. I actually found the guy who built them, he is still in business. They stopped building them around 1995 after building about 1200 of them. He said he just couldn't compete with the inexpensive molded plastic boats, and he got tired of traveling to boat shows to sell them. All the hardware on the boat is bronze, not plastic, so it would be hard to build this boat with the sails and all for less than $3,000 I'd bet.
