    I am building the Salmon Wherry glued lap at 16ft length. Have not finished her yet but I expect to come in under 200#. I am using 3/8ths ply instead of 1/4 called for in the plans so hull will be heavier but I am eliminating some bracing etc. as I am building a row only boat.

    For those who may wish to see my progress with Whisp, I have started documenting the project <click here>

    I've always thought this design was clever the way it laps the planks on the bench and uses the assembly as if it were one wide plank. I am considering this method for a larger outboard skiff that is on my drawing board. It would only be a lapped sheer strake.

    Whisp is such a pretty boat. Maybe it deserves its own thread in "build" as opposed to tacked on to the end of the plywood problem thread?

    Have done. See <this thread> which also includes a link to my photos about making some oars for Whisp.

    I used Joubert 12mm, 9mm, and 6MMin my boat. Completely happy with the quality. Via Edensaw in Port Townsend, WA.

    I would only buy from Boulter if I could personally see the material before purchase.

    Glad your happy with the result, I think I would have lost all confidence in them and asked for a refund and gone elswhere.

    For what it's worth, Bruynzeel is a top notch product with A grade veneers throughout.
    Ive seen better C grade veneers than in the pictures you show.
    Years ago it was Gaboon ply sold localy (the place I worked for was part of the boatcraft pacific group), not sure of the source other than Gaboon in Africa, but I believe this is also the Okoume species.
