You are just too good Capt. That salvaged hull will turn out as good a new one after the work you have done to it. 8)

Always buy more than you need. And in most cases of hardwood companies, at this time, its you take what they have, unless you pay a huge surcharge for cut specific stuff.

Its entirely possible to get most women to agree to such proposals, if she can have a ten carat diamond before the building goes up and its all paid for ahead of time. :lol:

Yep, thats luan with a fancy price tag, that is at best questionable, or so says many that have come before you. Sounds like you have been talking to Atlantic Veneer. This is the best source of quality plywood, in the marine industry in N.C. that is willing to sell and talk to the small builder need...

No matter how you extend the cure time of your resin, keep in mind that the issue of complete satuation needs to take place for a complete bond before the resin kicks, if you are laminating glass or forming a fillet with epoxy. Its not as important if you are just coating two pieces of wood and mech...

This is a branch of World Panel. Talk to Allen. He is a great to work with. Right now he is a bit short on plywood. But he is expecting a big shipment in within the next two weeks. Service is second to none. http://www.casinovendors.com/VendorPage.cfm/96271.html Windsor Branch 146, County Farm Road ...

Chilling epoxy changes the viscosity of it, making it thicker than normal, and very difficult to mix and work especially in the glass. The key is to use the slowest hardener and be patient not attempting to do large areas with big mixes by yourself. If you are using thickened epoxy, get it out of th...

55 lineal feet [14+41] at 6 inch wide is 27 1/2" bd. ft. Just because its planed down, its considered 1 inch in the industry.

This takes some work but in the end makes a better deck than buying plywood that is a thin veneer. You can use contrasting woods, and glue it on plywood. It takes some math and some space planning. I highly recomend that you use 1/4Luan for roughing in strips and save all your good woods till you ge...

Okoume's popularity is a mystery to me. Glen Witt is pretty hard on it here http://glen-l.com/wood-plywood/bb-chap5e.html. Why put something that is light, not strong, and of poor rot resistance in a boat. My only guess is that its the lightest while cheapest way for manufacturers to get to BS 1088...

A bird in the hand, 33 bucks, and better, is better than one in the bush, especially if that bird is three thousand miles away, and the folks sitting there cannot tell me the specifics of it. I have seen some of the cheaper brands with popular cores, which I am not interested. Keep in mind, the only...

I have just spoken directly to the company and inquired about the amount of plies and rating. I also ask if that was the correct price. I spoke to a lady and she said yes. I also ask how many plies that were in the 1/4 and she could not tell me but would ask her superiors. I also said that if she co...
