Surfski cockpit – Jan-Olof Karlsson
From Jan-Olof Karlsson who built a surfski prototype, a couple of ideas for a wood strip cockpit.
A simple and efficient pedal construction...
Fitting a SmartTrack rudder
On a couple of plywood supports, the main structure is stripped and laminated
The cockpit with the forward bulkhead (with a hatch). The boxes on the right sheer are cutouts for the rudder uphaul lines.
Fitting the side panels. Note the exit for the rudder lines (just aft of the clamp on the right).
