Further to my last post; I am trying to assemble the frame components of a boat using marine ply components rather than traditional sawn lumber.
My reasoning behind this is to save a bit of time & tooling along with the hassel of having materials sent to the NWT Canada (N of 60).
The plans that I am working from show 7/8" x 2-1/2" sawn oak frames. Can I simply replace these frames with 7/8" marine ply?
What considerations should be made for weight & strength of the plywood vs the oak frames??
Thanks for your thoughts!!
