      Thanks for the replys guys.

      I'm nixing the motor well it will be a watertight compartment,
      actually all the compartments will be watertight. Im going to scull
      the boat from the transom therefore the arch...The other changes are
      a wheel for steering, lazerete, a toerail with scuppers to ship it up.

      The rudder tiller will go through the transom something like the cat
      therefore lowered for the oar scull at the transom.

      The rudder and efforts are exactly according to plans. That is why I
      had to cut the sides back for the arch radias to intersect at the
      proper location aft.

      Im busy on a house remodel atm so I guess the boat will be relegated
      to weekends...I hate that but oh well.

      Ill have the boat ready for the messabout in June.

      Jim

                  Just came across this thread.
                  I'm considering using Ultraply for my Michalek AF3, and I'm wondering
                  what you think of it so far.

                  Any other boats on the web I can check out that have used it that you
                  know of?

                  David, Seems to be much better than luan. It is thicker than 1/4. I like the fact that no knot filling has to be done because both sides are completely clear.

                    David,
                    Seems to be much better than luan. It is thicker than 1/4. I like the
                    fact that no knot filling has to be done because both sides are
                    completely clear. It also has a plank look if you wanted to go
                    bright. It does smell different than any ply I have ever cut might be
                    the glues they use I'm not sure. It can also be a harder on router
                    bits.
                    Hope this helps,
                    Jim
