I would have thought most rib hulls have come from hard boats , why should it be any different ?

Fairy (Supermarine) made Spitfires, after the war the Huntsmen and Huntress boats were built using the same wood laminate technology. I didn't google that info but, i'm sure someone will and correct me on detail.
