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.

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 the conversations.
So, please come on over and join our community of likeminded Wooden Boaters.
