The kit ships in a box that is 60″ long. We are able to do that because we carefully cut a splice in full length stringer. This is later glued together forming an almost invisible splice, while keeping the cost of shipping at a minimum. Included are 1/2″ cnc cut forms, cnc cut light deck that has holes cut for the lights, set of 1×1″cleats for the strong back, 10 scarfed stringer, screws, all the wiring and hardware needed to wire and install the 4 LED Flat panel lights. A fun project for anyone with basic hand tools. Does not take very long. Looks great and should last for many years.
