OK. Here goes. Has anyone ever known of someone cold molding only the bottom of a boat, and splining the topsides? Say,if the old (carvel) plank thickness is 7/8ths,then make new planks of 5/8ths and add two layers of veneer of 1/8th each, with a layer of glass and epoxy, so everything will fit nice and neat into the existing rabbets. Pros? Cons? Oops, I almost forgot. 28'ketch, full keel, Khaya (African Mahogany) planking. Thanks for all helpful replys.
