Hi guys,
This is my first time here and I'm setting off to build the rowme.

Is it possible to use 3/8 inch ply for the sides instead of 1/4 inch?

Welcome,

Curious why you would want to use 3/8' there? I would think you would have a hard time making the bow come together with 3/8 as well as just add weight.

Thanks for the welcome Vupilot.
That's the very thing I am curious about, if I can get 3/8 to pull together safely/ easily enough I would go for it. The 1/4 inch is not available right now and I won't mind the weight trade off for a fast start to build.
