Hi DM,

Primarily a solo boat but the lovely Robin only weighs in at about 48kgs so will be able to double up for day paddles etc. Gonna go with a couble of Matt's sit backers mounted on a basesimilat to Chucks Freedon set up.

Well, Mick, you sly fox. Getting brownie points, getting ..... uhh other stuff too, and fishing too!! You are a lot smarter than Chuckie thought you were.

In fact, you're a lot smarter than Chuckie hissef! He's cooking hotdogs for the guys tearing up his lawn! Old boy's slipping a notch or three.

May be a dumb question but why do you have such big holes in your hull stations?

Not dumb at all mate. :D

The truth is, I just don't know. :oops: Thought they might double up or be a little easier to find perhaps? :oops:

More likely just another brain fart :oops: I had lots of them yesterday.

It took me 9 hours to set up the strongback and stations and I am still not happy with it. Will go and re-check everything again this morning before I start putting panels on it.

Before I start the next build, I am going to build a decent boat building bench, 18 feet long with a flat and level surface. My strongback is getting way too heavy to lift in and out of the shed and that 9 hours could have been better spent building my boat.

Looks like you were taking note from some wood strip building techniques. Wood strip builders who don't wish to use staples put those holes in place so they can use clamps and not staples to hold the strips to the forms/stations.
