Re: flat aft deck on CH14

Posted by Niels G. Mortensen on Oct 11, 2005

Jim, on my 17LT I installed an extra deck beam just aft of the hatch - plus a beamlet close to the stern. These really helped in obtaining a nice even radius on the aft deck - all the way from the cockpit to the stern. I also installed an extra deck beam between the fore bulkhead and the stem. Really improved the deck curvature, and made it easier to install the deck. And, it didn't add much to the weight; the kayak came out at 46 pounds - very close to the design weight. --Niels
