OK Jono.
I have tried to track down 10 x 5s in 18mm and failed dismally. 4,5,6,9,12 mm available by the bucket load but no 18mm.
Who do you suggest?

Thanks Nugent
Again only 8x4s in marine ply.
I can scarfe boards together myself. Its just that the deck is 5' wide over the back 10' and the only cut is around the well.
The more I look at it the more I am thinking 3 off 8x4s will be a better idea.
There are no ribs or frames aft of the anchor locker. I think I would like a bit more support latterally without relying on the deck.
If I use 8x4s, with 3' cut off the end, I can put a bulkhead under each join.

As Nugent said...I got mine from Birmingham board ...aka Arnold Laver. Have you rung them? I had mine about 3 or 4 months ago on quite a quick delivery from what I recall.. Just getting my "boy" to give 'em a call....

<edit> Oops ! Duff Gen..sorry. What was ordered ..by me..and what turned up didn't match, but the boys "on site" cleared it with the Site Manager...who seems to have overlooked the fact that I had specified Marine which i am just off to discuss with him.......it turned up as WBP NOT Marine... best look at the invoice carefully now.

Cheers Jono

I hope the invoice is for WBP or you will be after a BIG refund.

I have just had a meeting with the co-owner and we have decided to go the 8x4 route with additional bulkheads and stringers. To hell with the extra weight. It is one way of using up nearly a whole board of offcuts.

I have been quoted £59.79 / sheet, 1220 x 2240 x18 marine ply by my local timber merchants, which seems a reasonable price.

....so having "gone off on one" at the Site Manager… he doesn’t bat an eyelid and (imagine a heavy Black Country accent) calmly says… “ I told the lad’s it’d be alright…coz the Gaffer would know that Marine Ply don’t come in 10 foots… and I didn’t think you’d want to look like a c**k having ordered the wrong stuff…”………. Ho- Hum…

Hmm, a deck with no console, thats looks familiar Mark

However whats making me slightly nervous is the Tohatsu was built by the same firm and its had lots of water over and under it.

You don't fancy taking the engine and tubes off then glassing right across the hull ?

Pete
