Hey guys, I'm looking to sleeve my cat frame, and was wondering if any one has any advice. I'm thinking that making my cuts stagger across the length of the boat (ie. 6' on the left top rail and 4' on the lower rail, and opposing them on the other side) as opposed at the same point across the frame.
Will this help any thing (strength and rigidity) , or am I just confusing my self?
What about length of the sleeves them selves ( NRS does 12") ?
And sleeve material, 4" of steel pipe won't add much wieght ( no fly outs till next year, spent my budget on the boat this year).
