Hi,

Are the deck and botom flat ? If not, do you have drawings of the ribs ?

Good idea to share your template, thanks.

Thanks for the plans.

Do you know how much weight this thing will float? I am 6' and 210lbs (1.83m and 95k)

will this thing keep me afloat.

Thanks again for posting the plans.

yeah, that beast will float you just fine. i built a tom blake style paddleboard last year, it has similar specs and it could float well over 250lbs.

here is a nice article about paddleboard building on wetsand.com: http://www.wetsand.com/page.asp?locationid=5&resourceid=2151&ProdId=0&CatId=1044&TabID=850&SubTabID=1044

also got the blake drawings for his "watersled" from the u.s. patent office: http://drawinglines.org/blake_watersled.htm (these are on the US Patent Site as well, but I had to go through hundreds of entries to find it. figured i'd share the wealth and save anyone that is interested some time.)

I'm interested in this design. If there are templates for the ribs, that would be very useful. Also, are there mulitple stringers?

best way to quickly build a paddleboard is to use one rib for the wide point and "spanish windlass" the rails to fit. add your deck and bottom and there you have it.

Beautiful design, although I'm not good enough on AKU to create my own ribs for this board. Someday, I suppose.

Spanish Windlass: tie the ends of the rails together and twist a stick in the rope, drawing the ends near.

really it's not necesarry if your using thin plywood. i've only used it used it on my first pb when i was using 3/4 cedar boards on the rail.

learned about the windlass reading Howard Chappell's "American Small Sailing Craft"

Has anyone played with different designs. I have seen some guys struggling in choppy waters. I am sure the rounded bottom doesn't help them at all.
