Re: Thoughts on plywood
I'm near completion of a 12-foot sharpie skiff in ply and it was my first boat build. For my second build, I'm looking to traditional lumber and methods. For one thing, I can work in my unheated shop more effectively over the winter. For another, there not as much stop and go waiting for glue to dry--or at least that's my impression.
Still, the ply boat looks good and the sheet material gave this novice woodworker a "can do" attitude from the start.
There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.
