  2. today's work !
  3. Thanks anyway Ken Try and try until you succeed ( with lots of pins and cardboard !!!!!!! thanks to PAR )
  4. You're more than welcome !!
  5. Almost there 20170413_134350.mp4 20170413_134438.mp4
  6. That's so nice Ken x is about 18" and y 3" . I prefer a seating height of 17-18" if possible
  7. Sir, 

    I was thinking about building a Marissa and wanted to get someones input on the entire process before I jumped into it. If you have a moment I would great appreciate the opportunity to ask you a variety of questions. My email is Thank you very much.

  8. Hi lenm, walkway is 12.5 inches wide AT THAT LEVEL and that level is about 20" higher than the original sole (floor)
  9. Meester I realy appreciate your input . As you sad it must have to be build very strong to support all that weight leverage , that's why I'm not so satisfied with this geometry ! I used the system you mentioned ( or very similar ) on my other boat but I don't like the fact that I have to move 3 parts to open or close the seat ! BTW, at stern there's gonna be 3 x 2' seats instead 1 of 6' , therefore there will be a pair of " hinges " per person ( or so ) I saw (google) a very similar system used in " Whaler boats " that uses pivots instead of sliding mechanism . I think it's easier and stronger to built but the problem is to have the exact measurements of this mechanism !! Tried to figure it out but no success
  11. Is there anyone good enough in geometry out there ?? I am trying to figure out a stern folding bench that when closed down the upholstery will be facing backwards ( inside its compartment ) . I would like to have a seating height of 18" and 16" flat ( seat ) . The compartment where this closed seat will fit in is just 20" in height by 7.5" in depth . I am close to the seating height and width measurements but not yet satisfied !! The screw at the end point represents the cushion (foam) thickness
  12. The storage seat ! That can be used as a leaning post , with folding chopping board ( or table top ) , 2 drawers and space for cooler
  13. Yes lenm , the cardboards are my CAD !
  14. cabin and console glued
  15. It's so frustrating when that happens ! The best way I found was to twist them in stages and leave them on tension overnight , then continue twisting the next day . This was done on the 3 of them on my built . I know, this will take alto of days . I left them dry fit for an other week before gluing them together . An other option is to laminate 4 of 5/8 " instead of 3
