I'd like to know if anyone here has experiance with the Lindsay Lord ultralight strip planking method detailed in Dave Gerr's "Boat Strength" book.
This is a sheathed strip construction using epoxy glue and inner and outer sheathing layers of Vectra or Dynel cloth. It is supposed to result in a very light and strong but flexable hull.
I'm considering it for construction of a 38' semi-displacement ultra-fuel efficent power cruiser. The goal; a long, light, and narrow hull with reasonable interior room that can cruise semi-protected waters at 10 knots burning less than 1 gal diesel/hr.
