So I am abt to finally Start making the Lower Frames. I had to study the drawings as they do not clearly state the double layer sheeting thickness of the hull. I also think I may be missing some of the BOM (Bill of Materials) sheets.

I did finally however figure out it is double layer of 3/4" Mohogany that is custom made strips as they are between 5 1/2" to 11" wide with most being in the 6 6 1/2" sixe and 11'-6" to 14' long. I wont be worrying about individual for now will just make it like a sheet as these guys will be using balsa and fiberglassing the hulls. but I did need the thicknesses in order to make the bottom frames correct. will post some pics once get the frames all made

Hello Joe,
I've become hooked with this little vessel to the point that I've been doing a lot of research. I did come across this website and will add it to your build log in the event future viewers become interested as well.
