Re: Strip: Building Bjorn Thomasson's Frej

I forgot to mention:
Cockpit- Bjorn Thomasson specs a small cockpit, and the seat is located 'right back' in the cockpit. (My back is about 2-3" from the cockpit rim, vs 4-5" in my other boats. I can feel the difference in the neoprene sprayskirt.)

I found that the keyhole cockpit shape I substituted (similar to the NDK) didn't provide enough thigh support (since the seat was set back farther), so I added a couple of 'thigh hook'-type extensions which I made separately and bonded to the underside of the deck.
