I vote buy it now. Bryan needs some too. You can get back to the build faster in March.

I ended up ordering from Boulter Plywood in MA. So don't go now because of me.

I am leaning toward getting it now. Bryan.. How are their prices and delivery fees? If you need more later on, let me know. I'm sure I will be making multiple trips next summer...

I can see your thoughts. If ya buy more then that means straight into sanding when ya return. Ahhh the pleasure of sanding.

When I first looked at that picture it almost looked like you are putting radiant heating in the hull.

I thought the same thing. But that's silly, Neel doesn't need in-hull-radiant-heating...he goes to FL when its cold.

I stocked up on plywood this week. It looks like 22 sheets will complete the hull and then I'm not sure how many I will need for the deck and interior. I have planked with the second layer about halfway up the bottom. I will be taking a break for two months right after the new year. When I started this project, I began searching for a small, lightweight belt sander. I ended up buying the Triton TCMBS Palm sander. I love this thing and highly recommend it. It is perfect for boat building with a 2.5" wide belt. It is very aggressive when you want it to be, or very gentle as well. It is so light that it is very easy to control and you don't get tired of holding it, as you do with a big sander. I put it in my vice upside down sometimes to use it as a modified sanding station for quickly fine tuning planks. It also has a dust port.... I can't say enough good things about this tool. Here is a link to Amazon so you can check it out and read the specs if interested. I will post a picture of the "Triton"

I ordered one today. This deck rework is getting me. Baby it's cold outside.

Good move Bill..... I think you are going to like it... I am using a 40 grit belt on mine and it really does the job. Let us know what you think....

Does the dust port on the back fit the Festool vac hose? Tom

Tom.....Not sure if the Festool hose will go on it. When I use this with a vacuum, I use a regular shop vac and not my Festool vac. So I have never tried it. The end of my Festool vacuum hose broke off and I haven't replaced the hose, so when I use the Festool RO sander I clamp the hose on. So it takes time to remove the hose from one tool and put on another. I measured the vacuum flange on the back of the Triton sander and it is round with the OD being 1.5". I think the Festool hose will work on it but again not sure.

No pictures today, but I have managed to get the second layer of 6mm Okoume on about 2/3 of the bottom. I am going to hang it up until March after we get back up north from Florida. We will be leaving Pennsylvania on Thursday for Longboat Key to get into some warmer weather. Happy New Year everyone...…. Neel
