And bigger tubes.That’s pretty awesome. It looks like a big water machine. It’s a Sotar, right? Where are the logos? I thought maybe you were some new guy coming into the market.Needs more grey
Its one detail they got wrong. The valves should have been higher up.I wonder why a lot of manufacturers seem to put the valves right where the perimeter line will go. Is there any reason in particular? It seems like the perimeter line just gets in the way of using the valves, but maybe having the bowline over it is some sort of extra protection for the valve? Maybe just to have them out of the way and not be too much on top of the tubes? It's definitely not just your boat, I've seen it on all sorts of other rafts.
16’ with 22 3/4 tubes, with some special sauce thrown in for rocker and template.Specs?
Pine is secretly Adam Duritz hiding out as a boat junkie in IdahoNeeds more grey
Perhaps a mash-up of Explorer (fat tubes and extra rocker) and Pro (bigwater handling and load capacity) with that good Avon trackingCool design Mr. Pine sir. Looks Avon-ish to my eye. Maybe a little extra kick?
Thanks, it's as close to an Avon Pro as I could get, and I went to a lot of trouble to get close.Cool design Mr. Pine sir. Looks Avon-ish to my eye. Maybe a little extra kick?
Well, you need to start out with that kind of precision because boat makers introduce shitloads of error into the process, especially on custom designs that they’ve never built before.Can you just make your own design? .3mm off?! Come on dude, what kind of craftsmanship is that?!?!?
Thanks, much appreciated.Unsure how to PM.... Don't mean to get off topic.
Just wanted to say thank you for your bad ass website!
Looks very nice.View attachment 86275
I’ve been working on this design for a quite a while, through many challenges and tribulations. There were a couple of small misses on detail items, but the hull shape came out very close to the mark. I can’t wait to get it on the water. I think its going to be a game changer for everything from low technical water to multi-days on big, big water. I’m taking it to Zimbabwe in October for testing.
