Re: extra deck beam

Posted by Allan Reade on Sep 28, 2004

I have lowered the rear deck to 50in curvature after reading comments such as being easier to lean back for rolling (if I ever learn that). I have strengthened the top of the rear bulkhead with a 1 1/2in wide beam laminated from 2 layers of 4mm ply, and added a thicker beam about a foot back, just in front of the rear hatch. I'm 200lbs, too, but am still building so can't comment on success other than it's obviously adding weight. Good luck. Allan
