I’ve finished the cross members, figuring 18mm plywood should be plenty strong for the task. I’m not sure how much weight they’d be able to carry, but I feel confident other parts will break before the cross members do.
Connecting the pontoons was pretty straight forward. After some careful measuring, making sure the pontoons where parallel, fitting and gluing the cross members was easy. All the seems between the hull and cross members have been strengthened with 50mm glass fiber. I thing she looks nice 🙂
The area between the cross members will be decked in. Here I’m adding some blocks to help attach the deck to later on.
