- My boat shop is now finished and I picked up a load of marine ply from
Riverside Lumber when I was in New Orleans last week. Of course I have
lots of plans to choose from. I really want to build a Micro. My wife
wants me to build a day sailer like the Core Sound 17. She says the
Micro is too fat. I have plans for both. We sail on a lake in North
Louisiana where winds can range from non existent to strong. I had my
Surf in 15 mph winds once and I lived to tell about it. My GPS did
read 5.7 knots! I digress.
IF I build the Micro, I have choices from which to choose for ply. I
have 4 sheets of 1/2", four sheets of 3/8", and lots of 1/4" (I
figured that if I have the wood, I will build more boats).
What are your recommendations for which ply to use for the bottom,
sides, and decks? I know the plans call for 1/4" but I have seen lots of
variations on the internet.
AND any arguments in favor of the Micro I can use with my wife would
