RE: [bolger] Re: Plywood 101
- Both sides? I'm surprised, I've read in many books that wood even plywood
needs air to breathe thus one side only. Older books often refer to "paint
outside oil inside"

Having worked a lot with ACX and boats, I strongly agree it needs
glassing of both sides.
A heavy boat is not all bad, because the increase in durability and
improvement to stability are good things.
One issue with a Teal, like all double ended boats, the 12 foot length
has the same carrying capacity as a 10 foot transom boat, or an 8 foot

- The only types of plywood that you know for sure have a good core so
they will not be a problem down the road are the marine plys and good
MDO. Anything else you will find WILL have voides of one kind or
another shortning the life of the boat.
