Well….I just purchased plans from Team Scarab for the Scarab 650 Sport. The plans appear to be very thorough and a lot of work so this will be a long process. Since I don’t have a proper place to work on this I am going to focus on the laying out and cutting of all the parts. Today I am going to get the drawing files ready for the mechanical plates and pins for the folding aka mechanism. The plates and washers will be done with water jet and I will machine the pins myself. My pal Kevin has offered to do some of the wood cutting on his CNC router table which will be a tremendous help. I have not been through all the drawings yet to see which ones are already .dxf files but any that are not I will just draw them over again.
I had planned to build this from plywood and glass but I am going to buy some of the proper foam and experiment with that too. Might even do a combination of materials. I bought a Prindle 19 catamaran last fall to use as a doner boat but I see that the amas for this boat are close to 21 feet, the same length as the main hull. I will have to think very carefully about the positioning and just make sure this is still an appropriate move.
Whole lotta drawing and cutting coming up!!!
