Mike,
11'-9" long, plan to be solo or small pond/calm water tandem. Design was seeded from an original Parsons I highly modified for my likes: shortened, narrowed and lowered on ends. Lots of fairing / tweeking, we will see. stations look good on strongback at initial setup.
Next step is making a lot of saw dust ha ha.

Bob,
This is all I can find quickly, I'll look for better pics later on...



Wow, talk about a faded memory!! I guess it was the side strips 1st, then the bottom board strips. Took a while to find these, they're all I've got.

I see what you did, exact way I had decided to go.
Finally started planking.. Took a while to get the form true and straight.
