I built the hull from hydrotech, and everything else from okoume.  like said above.  Hydrotech is heavier, I used on the hull.  That's not to say I didn't use bits for small stuff that was laying around, but I bought nothing except okoume for the above deck stuff.  My supplier when asked gave me the various weights of the sheets by comparison.  1/4" okoume was 7 pounds lighter per sheet than hydrotech.  I didn't weigh it, I'm not convinced it could be that much lighter.  It is a featherweight, super light stuff!
  It should be noted that aquateck is for use above the waterline and not intended for below the waterline.

I will be trying to post video as I make progress on my GA. Today seems to be a learning process as Ive made several failed posts. Hopefully this will go through and is more introduction than anything. Im looking forward to this little journey.

Upload your videos to youtube and then embed or post a link here, youtube players make viewing a snap, as well as uploading and managing them in general. Guys like me who have a mac or iphone users won't be able to view a windows media file...

Wow. You are set up. Dont overthink it, just go. Start gluing things. Thanks for the video, cool to see how others are building. You have more than enough to get rolling. Cant wait to see a video series evolve. I meant to do that and got lazy so hope you have more luck than me :)

Are you not using lvl for the jig?  Can you elaborate on your plan?  Im interested in what you have going on, but I didnt follow it from the explanation in the video.  Thx

Im continuing on but with hiccups. My wife left her job because repeated Covid exposures were causing us to be constantly quarantined, so were a one-income family for the moment. I have some supplies stockpiled but didnt make it up for the wood purchase yet - had to let the dust settle and do some financial prioritization. Once we decided food and heat were less important than building the boat, I was able to start up again. Some questions on the platform: its not LVL, instead I glued up my own wood I-beam from 2x6s and OSB webbing. Ill show a cross section. Its very stout, straight and will be sufficient. Casters are on and its supported mid-section. Im about to square it up. Heavy bolts hold the legs to frame and the casters are set.  Ill go take some photos. I noticed another builder had used TJI joists for the frame and it worked well, so thats my logic. I still need to do a little cleaning!

Send me a private message with your mailing adresss. I have a few leftovers that might help a fellow builder. Not a lot but every little bit helps.

Nice!  Looks very strong too, which means no sag problems :)

Today I got the epoxy cabinet built today. Made completely of scrapped or repurposed wood and hinges and stuff. Insulated it with foam padding - sort of minimal but it might be okay. The heat source is a seed bed warmer. Ill see how it works.
