3-ply versus 5-ply
by Eddie Gregory
I need to pick your brains.
My new 60s style 21-foot Sea Hawk cabin Cruiser is coming on well but I have a bit of a problem.
I have been using 5-ply 3/8 marine ply for the underside and the bow planking.
I still have the upper hull planking midships to stern to cover.
Check out pictures on my website.
My supplier has run out of 5-ply but has plenty of top quality 3-ply marine, what do you think, should I use this or source 5-ply?

While the original system
worked quite well as a one-off post, it didn’t allow for updating or
posting new photographs etc.
That is why I have
introduced the new Your Pages.
This is new ‘Community’
platform is for 2018.
It is designed to put you
in control of your content, make it easier to for you to tell us about
your Wooden Boat, upload photos etc. and most of all post updates as
and when you wish to.
There is also a forum where
you can ask any questions you may have about Wooden Boats and join in
So, please come on
over and join our community of likeminded Wooden Boaters.
