Re: Ordered Arctic Tern Plans
17' - 8 1/4" end to end for the Actic Tern
36" OS to OS across the stringers
15" +/- floor to the top of the platform
I used 2x6 stringers and 4 sets of 2x4 legs with 2x2's for the cross pieces at the stations.
Go heavier if you're the type to climb around on the platform - take a look at Terry's setup.
I have a bad back, so I raised the platform to 24". It's nice for the planking and I rather use a plank to step up and work on the skeg than bend over to work. That's a bit to high I think, Terry's 20" is probably better for someone around 6' tall.
