yup working on another outrigger and was just thinking "gosh, wonder how people preffer their outriggers, open or closed deck?" so throw down you're coolest outrigger ideas and storys, crazy or otherwise, i might even include them in my new instructable (i probably will). but dont forget to respond on the actual question closed/open hull and why

i recently' came across some outriger plans by Gary dierking (check out his wicked book "building outrigger sailing canoes") and plan on building a "good  o'" plywood outrigger his designed named the "wa'apa"
(if this strip planking thing dosent work out). so how to you build a hul out of pvc, sounds like fun

wicked, easly one of the funnest boats to build. have fun mate
 totally. What are you building your boat out of? If I had the time and cash id do a good o' plywood and fiberglass, but for this summer I'm thinking PVC, I saw a nice set of plans using pvc pipe as pontoons.
