Re: Jon Boat Questions

D12 built with 4 mm ply. That will be a very light boat and matches the style you describe.

Re: Jon Boat Questions

. . . if these boats could be scaled to a narrower beam (4'' or so) without compromising safety or function? It would certainly affect stability. The GF12/14 and 16 are designed based on the width of a plywood sheet. The bottom panel uses the full width of a plywood sheet but not more. This makes t...

Re: D5 Questions for Jacques

Trust the dimensions, not the patterns.

Re: Question about OB 15 plans.

Just purchased the digital download for the OB 15. Looking at the the pdf files, there are a few size discrepancies. Between the metric version and the standard US version. For anyone who has built this boat, which file did you create your patterns from? I plan on using a CNC router in house to cut...
