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.
