perhaps, more. Phil Bolger said of one design, "Five
inches of plywood is pretty strong too." The original
concept was for steel and steel with insulating panels
wasn't working for the canals of Europe. Air draft,
the distance from the waterline to the top of the boat
or the bottom of the bridge or tunnel's top, was
difficult to achieve and to have adequate living

voids on the surfaces of the plywood, perhaps with
Bondo perhaps with wood, and largely ignore any voids

the courses of plywood themselves to make even
substantial voids between plys unimportant.
