This is a great group! Lots of help offered and much appreciated. I
am going to expore all of the advice and welcome any more.
I didn't necessarily want to make a different boat to start off with,
as I really only want the currach. I found the photo section really
helpful and with the advice given in the post I think I have a rough
idea of how to procede. Since currachs are primitve skin-on-frame
designs to begin with, I think that I'll just go for a really light
weight frame with kevlar rovings/strands??? and dacron skin. I can
always recover with canvas if it flops.
I'm sure I'll have questions and would appreciate this groups help down
