Hi all,

I'm building a Tom Yost 15R (amazing website and instructions, all credits should be given!), and got stuck with the cross section spacing. If I read well, cross section 1 starts at 0 feet, in contrast with other plans (0 feet is the bow point). Can anyone give some help? So far, I'm working the HDPE sections and inserts, and having lots of fun!

Best regards,

António

The plan tells the spacing from the foregoing section. So, the section 1 it's zero as long as there is no other section before it. All the sections spacing doesn't tell the distance from the bow but from each foregoing section.
That means if you want a longer/shorter boat than the normal 15ft, you just have to slide bow and stern and no need to slide the section spacing too.
For the original 15 ft you will slide bow and stern 2,9 ft before the section 1 and 2,9 ft behind the section 6.

Lodeon,

Thank you for your very useful reply! Meanwhile, construction advances, now working the connectors and small metal parts. Tom Yost's website has such detailed instructions that I'm surprised how things show up built. So far, so good.

All the best,

António
