How long does the Take-Apart thing work?
We've made it as easy as possible. In a nutshell, builders who want a Passagemaker Take-Apart version will install two forward bulkheads right next to one another, where normally there'd be just one bulkhead. Aside from this, the entire boat is built in the normal fashion. When you're done except for paint and varnish, you will cut the Passagemaker apart with a handsaw, the blade following the gap between the two forward bulkheads. To reassemble the boat, thread wing nuts onto four 5/16" stainless steel bolts. The wing nuts have "ears" that are three inches across---easy to tighten even with cold hands. So they're hard to lose and no wrench is needed.
