True North XPD 19/3

Post by hedgehog » Mon Aug 17, 2015 7:47 pm

can the strong back be built as per kayakcraft when building the True North or are the dimensions diffrent.

i will be ordering the plans this fall but i might get time to construct the strongback ahead of time.

I'm building the True North now, and just closing in the hull. For my strongback, I followed the instructions as per Kayak Craft for the frame, but I inserted a 24" section in the middle of the top, which gave me a 18' top. I just braced the over hang on each end to keep it level with the rest of the strongback top. Good luck with your build.
