  1. Haven't been on the post for a while but am getting ready to build another sof so I thought I would catch up. I built a shad last year shortly after the 9 oz came out and skinned with it. It did sew on very nicely. The few wrinkles ironed out nicely. I applied Varathane oil based sparurthane by Rust-Oleum. I experienced similar results with this product as with the Zar, more so where i has used heat to shrink the fabric, but some on the non-heated fabric. Reheating the fabric did not give lasting results. Anyone experiencing issues with oil based porch paints? Have not seen any mention of
  2. Thanks again for the information on the bow and stern. I have come across another issue I would like some guidance on. My instructions say to cut the Floor Boards 6-3/8" by 35" long. It appears these are to be installed between 6'11" and 8'7" pretty much flush with the ends of the frames about 21" on my frame. This seems to be how they are on what I can find on the forum. Please let me know the correct length. Thanks
  3. Anyone with experience with this fabric yet?
  4. How would you recommend sewing this fabric (running stitch or double corded)?
  5. I guess I need to reopen this post as what I thought I resolved doesn't work. If this plan calls for a tab and slot method for bow and stern assembly, frame 2.0 and 15.7 do not have slots, but it appears the stern and bow are designed to go through slots. The brackets for 2.0 and 15.7 block the stringer slots when the frames are put in place also. There is a possibility I could fit the stern but the bow assembly to me does not look possible. Would someone shed some light on this. Thanks
  6. Ha guys, after looking at it after I made his post, I think I figured it out. Would like to withdraw this post.
  7. I have started assembly on my Shad sof after receiving plans last week. I cannot see how frame 2.0 will attach to the stern or frame 15.7 will attach to the bow. These frames appear to be undersized. Is there something I am looking at wrong or misunderstanding?
  8. Have not been on the forum for a while and was following the possible development of the laminated beam for the shad. I build the short shot as my first sof and want to build the Shad next but was waiting on the laminated beam. Wondering why the change not to pursue it? Thanks
  9. It has been a while, thought i would check to see where we were on this
  10. Any update on when these plans might be available?
  11. Looking good, really enjoy paddling my Short Shot. She tracks amazing well ( no need for a skeg or rudder) but also is very responsive to turning. I am waiting on plans (laminated beam) to build a Shad but the performance of the short shot will be hard to beat. Enjoy
  12. Another question not related to this topic, Did you purchase the large backband, if so where or is this your creation?
  13. Thanks, understand. You will have an order (sounds like several) when these are complete.
  14. Any update when the laminated beam Shad plans will be ready.
