Guess I needed more to do, so thought I would try building a twelve footer. Bottom and sides will be gel over glass over wood. Considering putting a wood deck on it

Loaded it up in the pickup to take to storage, figure it weighs just over 100 lbs.

Now in storage until after new year.

That sounds good, but we're back in AK for the holidays. Maybe you can give me some pointers on how to do a 12 right, as you had one.

Never have had access to a Schiada 12, do have a 21. Did a drawing years ago of a 21Howard/DCM, scaled that down, did some push/pull to it.

Gotcha. Very cool. I look forward to watching the build.
