- Mar 2, 2008Spend the money and get good marine plywood. First boat, sure, go cheap. After you have a bit of experience, and want to show your workmanship, use the good stuff. I used to build furniture out of pine. I've graduated to cherry and walnut. Same thing. OK, I still use pine for some stuff.

I did not take a photo of it, but the ACX I boiled last week has had a
week in the arid atmosphere of the artic freeze we are having in New
England. The indoor low humidity dried that sucker out in record time
leaving a very nicely checked piece of plywood. The glue is holding,
but I can now see how easily the water will penetrate this ply.
that explains why the skiff I built of ACX deteriorated the way it
did. The rot could just get into the cracks and go crazy.
thanks for your patience, I am being a tad oc as I want my next build
to be terrific.
