I am also thinking of building an extended Hunky Dory, but have not gotten as far as ordering the plans. I have been hesitating until I could get some more info on the materials involved. Can you possibly list some of the recommended materials for things like frames, and planking? I hate to spend good money for a set of plans only to find out that the materials are hard to get and expensive if they have to be ordered and shipped from a specialty house. I would expect that a boat of this type would use relatively common materials in standard sizes for the most part, but maybe the designers got carried away and specified white oak and mahogany for everything!. anty help would be appreiciated. Thanks.
