Got Wood

Since the change in plywood thickness being in mm sizes now I was just wondering if anyone knew the sizes for the PM 38 and if they have built this boat were they happy with the thickness of the wood listed in the build materials?

Metric Sizes
by: Mike

Hi Jerry,

Just go for the nearest equivalent.

It's quite common for home builders to bump specks up but it is rarely necessary.

Most designs specify scantlings that are well within safety and strength limits.

So, a fraction of a mm either way won’t make much difference.
