Boat Building Materials / Re: Birch plywood

I agree with all the above.
Ply here in  a is of Indonesia and they sell it as a marine grade but I have seen a little of it behave like interior where it has been left outside even though it has a marine 'stamp' on it.
I've put that down to where the manufacturer hasn't used timber that has correct moisture content either as a veneer or perhaps where the area of the factory has been in tropical cyclone conditions.
I have ply off cuts thats been through 2 winters outside, got that weathered look and otherwise still is in good condition

So, what happened to you young fellas looking after us op punks flipping a hull huh?
lol, ya did well with winching up the front pointy end LaMont thank you!
Was to have the shed up by now, seems all our debitors took off for their break with our money!
And as we're into that 30 -40 deg C heat theres no chance of working on the etc with a mock up of it all.

So as we are setting up another income stream in the new year, again it'll be slow progress. Good thing is, I'll be making sure there is a spot for the boat inside the building.

Ur right, no bloody brown lawns, I never have had luck keeping ANY lawn green!

Pix of the flip few wks ago, thought few of you may enjoy, sayswho visited us here in Perth fortnight ago helping flip the 3.4M wide hull, it was fun lol, wait for the vid I will post on photobucket soon, called "62 yr old man gets airborne filpping his boat" !
Mad rush after Monday week to get the 4M high shed roof up - the heat & rain here is tropical to say the least.
Next will be a 1/4" MDF mock up of the hull topside extension forward of the aft bulkhead, to get a boat to look more in proportion to it's new size, cockpit topsides to stay the same as will the floor for better fishing, decks I'll build 12" wide as Lamont has 12" feet, the saloon floor will be raised about 8" to get the Cummins donk under and that'll sit below it, from there it's all up to getting the cabin & cuddy shape as up drew it - love the design here Brian. If I got me pencil & rule out on paper as I was taught 100 yrs ago then all this mock up wouldn't be needed.....

I've had problems with mine (hosting company) as well. I appreciate how helpful you are on this forum. I'm very excited about getting started. I'm going to hang out with Ed one more day before heading back.

Really enjoyed the day with You Lamont, you took to scarfing like a duck to water, talented, you will find building easy, if you just start on page one....
All your questions were surprisingly well thought out, I reckon your boat will be a gem, and one proud to own.
Looking forward to coming over to help mid 2017, gonna cost a few sheets of ply.....  ;)

Sounds perfect ...except you do know that making a boat shorter is against the law?  ::)   Ask Ed...

Brian

Keep me out of it! lol
I love whats happening here, and, I'll be putting a bit of flare into the front too and also similar sheer share - well, I'll need to, as the boats 3.2m wide and needs a little lifting in the topside panels..... but keen to leave the cockpit topsides as is, I read somewhere that 26 inches is a good height to fish from, something aboat scooping up the catch in a net.... can't remember...

Oh bloody great to hear some where's safe in this creepy liberal world.
I'm flying in to vote Trump, seems anyone in this world can vote in your country Brian.....
I love history, seems it's an old age thing as lots of older people get into history as they get older.
So, having said that, I'd have voted JFK (I remember the world in mourning when he was murdered) he was a peoples man, well, since that time elections have been rigged - no mater what anyone says they're talking from the heart not their head, history is being written agin in your country - what ever happens the outcome will affect me Brian, this one world order Obanana talked about some time ago is under way, I recon Obanana being offered the top UN job soon, that'll cement in the whole dang thing, so, vote wisely all who read this and other free writing jurno's reports that are not paid by the Soro's media.
