- Hi, Everyone,
For anyone who has the plans for Toto, how difficult would it be to
reduce the lenght from 13' to 12' or 11'? What would be involved?

the stations are spaced (2) feet apart; you could re-space
the stations closer together, say 20 inchs apart and draw
the panels based on that. The transom and rear bulkhead
bevels would be slightly off, but not by much, and a bit
of thickener in the epoxy would take care of that problem.
My bevels are not that accurate anyway.
It would be simple ennough to do, but before that, read
the "write-up" for the AFGrande plans @ the Duckworks online
plans catalog. Jim M discusses how a relatively small
reduction in the size of a boat can have a big effect
on the capacity of said boat. He refers to a "scale-down"
of a boat while you are only looking at shortening it,
but a Toto does not have a lot of excess capacity to
It would be best to discuss this via e-mail with Jim M
I don't think that I would reduce the boat any.
That's my opinion.
And I always have one.
