My friend up in Canada is building the same design, except 19 1/2' long (mine is 18'). Cost for boat and trailer is $9500 Canadian. You will then have to provide the motor - 50 to 75 HP at the powerhead will work great. I've run many different types of sleds guiding in Alaska and Russia. As far as flyfishing goes, where the boat is used to get from point A to point B, this boat design cannot be beat. It traverses shallow water, sneaks through moderate whitewater, turns on a dime, and maintains steering control at ALL speeds. If you are SERIOUS about wanting one, shoot me a PM.
