|Last week I relaunched my Platt Monfort
Rob Roy. I first built it several years ago, but it came out too
heavy. I used Nylon canvas to cover the boat originally and Neoprene
to coat it. I used it but not enough. Finally, I swallowed
hard and started cutting. I managed to eliminate about 20 pounds of
unnecessary wood that I had added, thinking that the boat as shown in the
plans was not stout enough. Then I covered it with some new 10oz.
Nylon twill and coated that with Hypalon.
