Easier Plans for the Zephyrus 17 ?

Post by Oldsparkey » Sat Jun 19, 2004 11:20 am


I received the plans for the Zephyrus and wish to thank you for them.

After studying them, very carefully, I was wondering if you might be considering making a set of plans that would be a little easier for a person to make. Like the plans for the Swamp Girl. :D

I have built a lot of wood boats and understand the plans but for a first time builder they might be a little to much. A easier set would change the boat to a degree but it would enable a 1st time builder to have a great boat. Or am I wrong in this thought :?:

Just something I was wondering about.... The Swamp Girl was easy and fun to build , more fun to paddle.
Now I am looking forward to building the Zephyrus 17.

An excellent idea.

I'll work on that one. Same basic features but a more straight forward design that is not as hard to build.

Won't be exact same look or performance, but darn close.
