Re: Skin-on-Frame: Siskiwit Bay SOF build

It looks really good- but I think you should seriously consider adding a pair of pieces behind your cockpit like the ones found on a traditional frame to support things on the aft deck. You'll want to be getting into the kayak the way most people with skin on frames do- by sitting on the aft deck with the kayak in the water so as not to damage the skin. Without those pieces you'll be sitting on the skin directly with no support, and I don't see good things coming of that.

Very nice looking frame.
