Re: Strip: Bjorn Thomasson HUNTER project start *PIC*

The plans may seem somewhat minimal compared to what some other designer provide. Black Pearl is a very basic kayak with small amount of 'extras'. Options are not described in detail, but hinted and with a short discussion on pros and cons (see image below).

The kayak is designed to be used without a skeg, but if you want or need an adjustable skeg, one possible idea are outlined on the plans, but there are many alternatives: commercial systems, build one yourself or use any one of all DIY ideas from the internet.

The stems are straight pieces of wood, so I figured a full size drawing would not be needed. How to make them is adviced on the plans: "The inner stems are straight pieces of wood, approx 12x50 mm
and a meter long. Attach these to the strongback in the correct
height above the strongback (as shown on the lines plan), and in
cutouts in molds 1 and 12. Attach the keel strip, cut the stems
where they intersect and glue the joint. Round the joint (profile)
as on the lines plan – eyeballing is good enough."

Full size stems would have depicted paralell straight lines, required a sheet double the size of the plans, adding to printing and shipping costs.

The image below is what a lines and construction drawing looks like (dimension of course vary depending on the user). The second sheet contains the full size station molds and cockpit shape, and the online manual in English is available on my site: (http://www.thomassondesign.com/en/building/building-manual)
If this is to meagre, you have two options: build another kayak, or send a mail when you find the plans unclear ;-)
