I am taking my idea off the hull of the Old Town Vapor 12XT Angler. I started by going to the local Bass Pro Shop and taking some pics. and getting some measurments. Then off the Old Town web site I traced these pics. and scaled it to an inch to a foot. Then transfered the frame lines to pcs. of 1/4'' ply. and then made the frames off these. I used 3/8'' baltic birch ply. for the stem. Here is my cedar wood sorce..old fence pickets. I ripped the pickets into 1'' wide strips then into 1/4'' thick strips.
