      George,



      The original planking specs are Double Diagonal White Cedar, inside 3/8" and
      outside 7/16". We are proposing double diagonal 12mm marine ply.



      The bottom is specified as 1 3/4" White Oak, we are proposing double 19mm
      marine ply.



      The lower Skiff part of the hull will be made separately on moulds, with the
      fore and aft sections cold moulded as appropriate, then "stitched & glassed"
      into the remainder of the hull.



      The hull will be made on chipboard moulds the same shape and spacing as the
      original frames and, once turned over, internal plywood bulkheads lifted
      from the lofting and installed to suit the interior layout, (which is yet to
      be determined).



      Well, that's the plan at least... What do you think ?





      Alan

      Alan,

      Taking a design like the River Belle and converting to stitch and glue will
      require a sizeable amount of engineering, especially a 35' boat with a
      Seabright Skiff type hull. What type of hull planking does the plans
      specify: material, thickness?

      George

      I am about to build a River Belle and have been persuaded to use "Stitch and
      Glue" method with plywood instead of sawn frames & planks.

      Has anyone any thoughts or better still experience ?

      Alan
