Plascore for building a dinghy
by Captain Hugo
I built a 10 ft dinghy from marine plywood to plans and it is fast, stable and strong.
But it turned out to be too heavy.
Now considering building exactly the same design with the composite material known as PP Honeycomb Plascore but have no experience with this.
Can anyone please enlighten me regarding methods of joining sections and whether the whole boat needs encapsulating with fibreglass after construction.
Any advice or referrals would be greatly appreciated.
Where can I find more details about this and/or similar light and strong composite building materials?

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
