Another 'Guillemot', built by Davide Boschi in Italy

Davide sent me a description of his work a long time ago, in .doc-format. I personally dislike Windooze-centered formats, so I took the liberty of converting it to a slightly more compact and more portable PDF version. The pictures below are taken from this document.

Making the deck. Who said this was an easy project?

Fitting the deck.

Fixation to the roof strips.
Davide - the proud constructor.
