: I am very interested in building this sailboat, the
: only two conserns I have is the cost and time. The
: last thing I want to do is start a project and let it
: go unfinished. So I was woundering if anyone could
: give me any info about the cost of this project, and
: the time you spent doing it. I was also wondering if
: the 3/8" plywood was the type you would normally buy at
: the hardware store or does it have to be a special
: marine grade of plywood.
GLEN L PRODUCES A VERY WELL WRITTEN BOOK ON THE
SUBJECT OF BOAT BUILDING IN PLYWOOD AND IS VERY
INEXPENSIVE FOR THE QUALITY AND QUANITY OF INFOMATION IT CONTAINS.....I THINK IT'S PRICE
IS AROUND 25 BUCKS....TO ANSWER YOU QUESTION ON
USE OF "HARDWARE STORE" PLYWOOD,DON'T USE IT UNLESS YOU WANT TO END UP WITH A DELAMINATED
PLYWOOD BOAT,BUT THERE ARE MANY OTHER CONSIDERATIONS.......SEE GLEN-L'S BOOK..........
YOU WON'T BE SORRY........
