The Quattro is built in a similar manner to the Pixie. Tortured ply stitch and glue.

Again, the gunwales are straight to simplify making the hull panels

Once the panels are joined and cut to shape they are wired up and four bulkheads inserted while held in a simple chipboard jig

"I live in Toronto, Canada and I recently began building a Quattro 16 in my garage. So far it is going well. I have included a few pictures of the boat so far. I will send more as the boat progresses, and I hope you like them! "

 

The Pixie uses a simple wooden slot together beam system. The Quattro is more sophisticated, still simple though. It uses aluminium crossbeams that fit into vertical bolts

Once these have been fitted the boat is decked. The hulls are sheathed with a light glass cloth (not used on the Pixie) Total build time ready to paint is about 150 hours
