Re: Rigid Frame History -10,000 yrs old

: I should have stated it more clearly:

: The example I mentioned consists of 2 rigid frames, over which
: stringers are strung and then skin is overlaid. This
: construction methodology is:
: - identical to so called ‘fuselage construction’
: - is 10,000 yrs old
: - was (1995) considered original or close to an original skin boat
: - is a boat construction tradition

As per usual, there's not much new under the sun in boatbuilding :)
