Sure, now that I no longer own the Scamp I see how to properly fix the problem!

Looks great!

How many beads, and what sizeof beads did you use?

Hey, I'm else would I know how many to buy!

Hey Norm and Ginny, I thought I might pick your brain a bit on your post. My boyfriend and I just bought a 1989 16' Scamp and it did not come with a screen door. We're hesitating to order one new as they look fairly simple to build and install. I have been looking for plans/dimensions and haven't found anything online yet. I was wondering if you might be able to elaborate a bit on your design? Thank you!
