Builders Comments:

A jig constructed of 2mm duragal steel was used to keep the keel sections alligned.



By using a thicker gauge and a slighly different design, it is possible to turn the jig into a trailer.




During this phase it is important to ensure that the jig is level and well supported. An error here will cost you BIG time later. Be warned!!


Our Comments:
A very smart boat built to the stock plan by Steve Wallis of Western Australia.

 


 
Two Up is a conventional design with a most satisfactory performance and an appearance that leads to comments that the drawing does not do the finished boat justice.
 


Steve has taken about four years to build his catamaran, fitting construction in between a busy business life and family commitments.

Boatbuilding does become a bit of a passion and this reflects in the superbly finished craft.


You can see this for yourself. I do not have to tell you.

The hull of Two up can be built up right or inverted, for some reason most builders seem to choose upright for TWO UP although I would build it inverted.



The various building stages are clearly shown. 

 Once again one logical step after the other.
