Re: S&G: Started
In Response To: S&G: Next boat ()

I decided to hold off on building another boat until such time S&G plans become available.
Instead, inspired by a Mirage Freeride last weekend I purchased a OneOcean Storm with the intention to convert it to an open cockpit kayak. The woodwork is good but the epoxy and glass work is not so good. have cut open the deck and will strip off the old glass next week.
I have a salvaged cockpit from my first ski but I think that might be difficult to fit in and seal without cutting away all of the deck over the cockpit. I'm now thinking of using eva fioam to pack out the seating and leg area.
