Strip Sit on Top example


> and 30ft cruisers do not dare. Who will design the first cedar sit on top?

Was able to look at sea kayaker june 95 back issue over the weekend for the skeg article.The completions section had a laughing loon north star converted into a sit on top!!

Altho a barge(75#), it demonstrated the possibility of actually doing it, This one used deepvertical cuts at the forms in front and behind the cock pit w/ a flat area in between. In the flat area was a hole for the butt and a hole for ea foot. (3holes).

A much more graceful approach would be to take the typ cockpit cutout and dramatically lengthen and deepen it. Then holes as above or I think the U shape would be the best.
