Hi! Each unit weighs 5.5 kg, its dimensions are 175 cm x 42 cm x 7,5 cm and its very comfortable to lie down to rest because carries within it a camping padding. I have sailed with 20 knots and offers no wind resistance because of its size. Polycarbonate panel Dual Camera is very durable and is protected by padding camping and waterproof plastic canvas. Its made of stainless steel rivets and each completed unit has cost 75 euros.

Thanks for those details Abisal12 and thanks for including how you made the haka in your entertaining video. 8)
I like your innovative use of the polycarbonate panel. In Oz the maximum thickness of dual walled poly panel seems to be 10-12mm. In your video the panels seem deeper.
A couple more questions-
What is the depth of the panels you used?
Have you tried standing on your haka?
I'm very impressed. You have taken the haka into the 21st Century! :)

I used a polycarbonate panel measures 200 cm x 98 cm x 1.6 cm. for the two units haka. You can walk perfectly on them if the distance between rungs of the ladder is the same as that used me. It is recommended to protect the polycarbonate panel using a padded camp, but I walked over it on the floor of my house before having protected and nothing happened. Greetings.

Thanks for those details Abisail.
So it looks like you've used the 16mm triple walled polycarb as seen here.

Unfortunately it's not available downunder. Doubling a 10mm sheet is an expensive option.

Stringy, I would tend to think that 10mm thick is actually strong enough, given that the verticals "run the right way" from rung to rung. Polycarbonate is incredibly strong stuff. I think I will look to using it, and if necessary just ensuring that point loads are over the rungs (Bum pressure is spread out LOL)

Too bad there are no other distributors in your area. Here we have many measures 16 mm. We will have to find another solution for your case and fit a panel of 10 mm polycarbonate. I think riveting three aluminum strips 4 cm wide x 2 mm thick on the steps (one in the middle and two on the sides, attached to the main beams) and the panel of 10 cm above could be strong necessary. Then compensate by putting a quilted wider (and more comfortable.) The workshops usually have large aluminum sheet aluminum panels If you ask the strips cut like that in any shop you will come very cheap. Greetings.

Let us know how the polycarbonate sheeting goes Tony.
Thanks Abisal but I've given up on the poly for now.
I decided to go with the 007 security mesh.
Hopefully I'll test it out tomorrow using a dinghy seat as padding!

I built mine out of four 6 foot long by 1x3 oak boards with a 1 inch gap between each board for water to flow. I hook them on with simple bunges so that they are quick to move and remove. They are reminiscent of sailing canoes. I will try to post photos soon, my TI is still in winter storage....
