In the interest of time and money, I've decided to use marine plywood to plank my lapstrake dingy.
I've just cut out a pattern for the garboard, and when trying to bend it around the station closest to the bow (the point of maximum bend), the outside layer of the cheap 1/4" plywood I was using for the pattern cracked.
So, now I am thinking I may need to steam bend the marine plywood plank, so it doesn't crack...
I'm pretty sure the plank just needs to bend at this one forward station... the run is pretty straight right to the transom from there.
Question: can I use the 'wrap board in rags and pour on boiling water' method of spot bending this bit of plywood? Or will boiling water cause internal glue failure, or some other dramatic failure that will ruin my day?
