Started building SOF

Postby Peter&Ro » Mon Oct 24, 2016 7:41 pm

Well finally got started on my SOF machined all the timber, mostly following Cunningham's information and adapting methods to use what equipment I have on hand. Fabric and all the other bits coming form Skin boats. and a sheet of 5 mm ply for the ribs. So this should keep me busy for awhile. Using slightly smaller dimensions on all my timber sizes to keep it as light as possible. Once together I think all the piece will work in conjunction with one another to create the required strength, Well that's my theory well see if it works. I am building it for rolling it is 18'-6"" longe 19.5" wide and height over all will be about 11" I'll have some photos on the next post

Cheers Peter
