Using 4mm, 3 ply Meranti 1088 w/ FG epoxy encapsulation
I have read a number of articles in which it was stated that a stitch and glue boat could be constructed using standard 1/4” exterior grade plywood as long as the wood were fully sealed inside and out.
My question (as applied to a 15” sailboat) is; could such a sailboat be constructed with 4mm .157”, 3 ply Meranti 1088 with both inside and outside of the hull completely encapsulated in fiberglass-epoxy?
If you have had any experience using this construction, I would be very interested in hearing your comments.
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.
