Towing the V10

You say that you need to double the transom when either using an outboard or towing. Do you mean at sea or on a trailer? Not going to be using and outboard or sailing, just rowing, but at times I will be towing it behind my sailboat. I'd like to make it as light as possible, and am not clear why the...

Re: oarlocks for the V10

Thanks very much, Jacques. Figuring out all these little details is what makes the project so engrossing, even for a simple boat. I'm not in any hurry anyway, as when I get done I'll have to actually get exercise rowing it.

Re: oarlocks for the V10

OK, Jacques, I get it now...the idea is the correct positioning relative to the rower's position at the end of the seat. duh. My objective is a little different. I'm cutting the shear clamp before assembling the boat, because I am taking your advice and using the sides as a guide for measuring the c...

Re: oarlocks for the V10

Thanks, Jacques...
What I'm trying to determine is how far the seat edge is from the frame, which I'm guessing is the middle of the seat, or 6" in from the frame?

oarlocks for the V10

The location for these is listed as 11" aft of the seat edge. The seat edge measures 12" wide, so may I assume the seat edge is 6" aft of that, making the oarlocks 17" behind the middle frame? This means that the seat is centered on the frame, which seems obvious but so far as I can tell is not mark...

Re: V10 bow drawings

Thanks very much Jacques--it'll make this weekend a little less of a nail biter. I know the thing about that 1/8" forgiveness, and in any other part of the plans I'd forget it...just that if I screw this one part up it might make the bow ugly, and I don't want that. I just bought one of those weird ...

Re: V10 bow drawings

I haven't heard any comments on this one and am planning to cut the not particularly cheap plywood this weekend. In the absence of further input I'm going to have to go with my assumptions on the measurements which make the most sense to me. I'll split the difference on the bow and use 17 7/8" for t...

Re: V10 bow drawings

Also, what is the dimension of the edge indicated by the red arrow here:http://gallery.bateau2.com/displayimage ... play_media
My guess is 17 7/8" but I'd rather not guess.

Thanks!
