Re: question re: AC Exterior vs AC plywood
If you really want this boat to last, I would suggest you spend the extra money and use marine ply. Because you don't want the following to occur.... "what ever happened to that nice little boat you made?" "Well, she wasn't used for a few years, and it ended up rotting". I built my first boat out of ACX and even put epoxy and fiberglass cloth over it, and the plywood eventually delaminated. My current boat is BS1088 Okume marine ply, and it is 7 years old and still like brand new, and plan to give it to a grandkid.
The wife says I can have a mistress as long as she has ribs made of white oak.
