Jacques I think I have correctly fill out all the measurements, a double check would be very much appreciated, don't mind the station forms to much, I know they will be a bit different in real.
Also could you take a look at the notes I made at stations 9, 10 and 11 ? at the last page I put in some frame measurements I think the 80 mm will work if I compare it with the notes, but the thickens you told me 10 mm your sure about that? the notes say 3/4 so wouldn't 18 mm ply better?
Also could you take a look at my earlier question about the frames caber with the frame pic

Thank you

Peter, I'll take a look at it but I have a good number of kits to ship out plus my regular business and
open heart surgery next month.
But I will look at it because I want this built to succeed. If one person can do it, it's you.
OK, Larry and some others are just as able technically but you have the enthusiasm for that type of boat.
I will check your figures.

Peter.

I haven't looked into the stations in super great detail, but I am not sure why station 6 would be narrower than 5 and 7? It seems like that would be a bad idea for fairing?

Btw: I want this boat in a jet, so let me know how I can help. I love it!

Thank you very much Will, almost sure you're right 8) , I think I misread 26 and should be 28 assuming you're talking about the center line to sheer measurement.
enlarging and printing those plans make them difficult to read :help:

If I'm gonna build it (probably gonna happen :) ) I will try and document it as good as I can including drawings etc. so feel free to use that for your jet version, would be cool if I could inspire others to build. 8)
I on the other hand probably end up with a V6 or 8 with a straight shaft :wink:

Yep. 28 would make more sense. That was what I was talking about. I'm on vacation until next week, but will start looking over these plans at that time.

Thanks
