Thanks. If you are building from scratch with new materials, i would definately go with Alaska Bob. 

Mine are basically a box, with built up sides to attahe to the spindle, and a too thick 3/8" uhmw ski.

I probably broke the rubber pedal by trying to turn the nose ski with too much skeg. Watch the skeg size and orientation especially on the nose ski.

Skis are put away but will try to find other pics.

Hello Bob,

I was planning on making a copy of the Alaska ski plans floating around here .... but i had a lot of scrap material and odds and ends that i designed my own while building them. They are quite heavy, made of a 6x6x 3/8" hollow structural square and builtup beams of 2x1x.125 angles .... an odd size leftover from a scrap metal dealer.  They are very robust, but very heavy. I would recommend building the ones from plans ..... i think its from bob snow in Alaska? 

I will post some pics later.  Cheers.
