This is not a Rolls Royce rib but has served us well and was cheap to build.
Well if it works it works! Wish I had the time and knowledge to do it. Good on ya

The very left of the photo, looks like someone's photoshopped a bit of tube on the end with a wider strake.

JSP - seems like you are basically doing a SR rebuild anyway - with a set of plans the tricky bit is not the "hard engineering" but the finishing/detail work - which you will be doing anyway.

I wouldn't trust my own work enough to build a hull. It would have to be a huge meccano set and then I'd want it checked out by the pro's.

I agree, gluing and screwing lumps of wood together is the easy bit, making it look pretty takes a bit more effort,
