I do like the finished article.
Im going to copy your idea itvtge bow box and make one of my own.
I also suffer from the bow in the air issue when im out on my own. I had been using a tiller extension but I wasn't to keen on it.
It will also tidy my cluttered floor up a bit.
What thickness of marine ply did you use?
