Simmons 18

I've got the plans & am getting ready to notch the strongback.

It's a bit ambiguous.

The floor plans say "G= O.C.* distance aft of the next lower floor number".

Does Center-to Center mean center of lower number floor to center of the next higher number floor?

OR Aft end of lower number floor to center of next number higher floor?

If you told me to build a wall 16" OC I would know exactly what to do...

Sea-Skiff Plans
by: Mike

Hi Joe,

I'm not familiar with the Sea-Skiff plans.

The best place to go for information is the Cape Fear Museum Store which is the only source for T.N. Simmons’ Sea-Skiff plans.

Or you could try the Simmons Sea Skiff owners and Enthusiasts website.

While the original system worked quite well as a one-off post, it didn’t allow for updating or posting new photographs etc.

That is why I have introduced the new Your Pages.

This is new ‘Community’ platform is for 2018.

It is designed to put you in control of your content, make it easier to for you to tell us about your Wooden Boat, upload photos etc. and most of all post updates as and when you wish to.

There is also a forum where you can ask any questions you may have about Wooden Boats and join in the conversations.
So, please come on over and join our community of likeminded Wooden Boaters.
