    She is going to a lake in California.
    Sleek , I cannot really speak to exactly what you need, It's a compromise usually, of strength, weight, will the ply make the bend?
    Ballpark...half inch bottom, three eighth sides and deck. Then there are stringers, will the boat have framing, sheathing... I dunno these things, and I'm not an NA.
    There are two flavors of "tek" "aqua" and "hydro". One is better than the other...use the better. The lesser one is more liable to have a "white "wood as a core . We know that crappy ply is bad economy. But ib general , the best "tek" is half the price of Occume.

    She's looking pretty slick. New owner should be pleased with your repairs.

    Glad you didn't get hurt in the crash. Good to see the Wiz being patched up.

    We spent the whole day yesterday tearing up south sound in Bingo, showing Max how she operates, having never used power trim.

    I wish I knew that Wizbang was still out there, I though that the accident was the end of him...Ö..

    There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.

    Good to see the giant boat shoe (or loafer?) back together!
