Matt,

I know this is an old post but I would be interested in this one. Did the plans ever get complete and have any been built?

Thanks,
Kevin

They didn't. The way it's drawn up kept it from finishing. But I am looking into doing a tandem.

Would it have the same three choices for cockpits? Either two larger ones or one big one for two people would work for me.

Thanks, Kevin.

Yes.

Thinking of using the Okwata or South Wing platform and taking the length down to 18'. It was 20' originally and that's just a lot of boat to handle in and out of the water.
