    Bill I am thinking he is asking what length andhow many lengths of the cut pipeis needed. EX: Vertical pieces that make up the 4 sides of the rack (13pieces 8 1/2 inches) Short pieces that make up the base connecting the TEE or srosses.( 20 at 4 3/4 inches) I am not sure of the lengths of yours. THESE NUMBERS AND LENGTHS ARE SOLELY FOR EXAMPLE. I know you will be posting these numbers but it sounds like the rum may have gotten him ahead of your build.

    Comprende now amigo? I know those are my two lengths (not necessarily the quantity) along with a few other sizes depending on the ski I am building for. The main design are the same for all the skis I have built for, I just adjust the length of a couple of the pipes with 2 design differences depending on jerry can only, quantity, ice chest, fishing or recreational.

    Well then, Happy B-Day. With any luck your "rum" effect will wear off about the same time I'm finished w/this project . Good luck everybody...

    Why the double bottom?

    To maximize the overall capacity/size of the Rack: My RXT has gunwales that sweep to the back of the ski. If I don't raise the bottom, then my rack has to fit within the confines of the rear of the deck. By elevating it, the width of the rack is not bound by the width of the ski. I guess it depends on what type of ski you have...

    The pic. may help you see my design reasoning. However, the rack wasn't centered when I took the pic. The edge of the rack actually comes to just inside the rub rail on the ski.

    Also consider the hump in the top deck where the tow hook is.
