Re: New june bug on the block
- They are wonderful pictures of the Junebug, especially in the water. It is a wonderful boat. We use one as a rowing dingy on the bolger Houseboat #481 and built it very light weight to cary on the roof. It is a joy to move it around and to row. Also occassionally with the 2 h.p. honda it is a great skiff and also transports well on the roof racks of almost any car. regards and congratulations Maximo on a nice job. Paul

- What kind of plywood is that with such wild grain? I love it.

- Hello Sam! yes, my dog agree :)
OK I will do the math with Idaho weight.
Thank you Paul, we also transport june bug on the car roof.
Fred, the plywood is "Guayca". I have no idea how to translate.
One face regular and one face bad :)
It is very difficult to find 4 x 8 foot plywood (1.22 m x 2.44 m), because
for construction, they use 1.60 m x 2.20 m
- In the US, ply that looks like this is sold under the name Auroco, a
Chilean plantation grown pine.
I bullt a Brick with it once. The sheets were quite well made,
probably B/C, and inexpensive, though here in the moist PNW quite
subject to rapid mildew.
