Rebel Tug - Plywood
Bill of Materials

MATERIAL LISTING: The listing is an approximation that can be used for basic hull cost estimates; it is not meant to be used for buying materials without first checking the instructions and plans for various options (especially regarding power) which will vary the listing, and to local suppliers for what material sizes may be available. The listings do not include cabin or interior members. Each builder should make decisions as to how he will build the boat and use materials, and then take off a listing to suit. As a cost savings, materials should be grouped for resawing to the sizes required. Materials are listed for the basic hull members only and do not include options, variations, interior members, etc.

PLYWOOD: All plywood should be at least AB Exterior or Marine grade; Interior plywood is not acceptable. Douglas fir or Mahogany-type panels will suffice. Plywood panel lengths are given to cover the length of the vessel as designed, although stock panels in these sizes may not always be available. Use shorter panels as available, either butt- or scarf-joined per previous information.

LUMBER: All lumber should be top quality, free from defects, and of types proven in use in boats. Suitable woods include Sitka spruce, vertical grain Douglas fir, mahogany (including Philippine, Honduras, and African types), and comparable woods of good quality. Thicknesses are nominal except as noted "net". Widths are net except 2" thick nominal members may be of nominal width also. Total lengths allow some overage for trimming, etc., but the breakdown for number of pieces should be checked to the plans and matched to lengths of stock available.

Adhesives: Epoxy adhesives are advised throughout the construction. These may be an epoxy adhesive or epoxy resin. Epoxy resins should be used with thickeners (silica or equal) per the instructions with the resin and/or thickening agent. Due to the noted options, the amount required is difficult to estimate. Start with a gallon container of epoxy and after use you will be better able to estimate the total amount required.
