650Re: [AtkinBoats] Re: Atkin plans, how much detail and what come with them
- Apr 26, 2005I must inquire as to what kind of strip built we are
refering too. My assumption from the original post
would be that the inner layer would be stripped then
sheathed over much like a stripper canoe. The second
post sounds more like plank on frame, with a form of
caulking, may it be cotton, Sika or otherwise, between
the planks which when full of water swell up and seal.
Are these assumptions correct?
As for the plans, The plans for Trim that I purchased
include the original article, boy I wish the bill of
materials still cost what is listed! Any one have
plans fora time machine? All the other information
needed to build the boat is there, however, it does
require full lofting, so one would need to be skilled
in laying down lines. I must say that the
Draftsmanship is superb. I work in the residential
design business and since the advent of computers I
know I couldn't draft like that anymore. It is my
opinion that the price of the plans are well worth
what is there.
