Marine Grade Plywood?

Quote "Of course you have the same thread every few months. You get new folks who didn''t see it last go through and they have some of the same questions... and need the same answers. It''s the nature of these type of boards" It is the nature of inexperienced people not to listen to the advice that more experienced people are giving that seems to be happening more often than not.IMHO people that build/design sailboats should sail first,it only makes sense,but when you see poorly designed boats it makes you wonder.There are boat hulls laying around from coast to coast and this should be a clue as well.Some people build for ego others for a form of meditation.....etc.The bottom line is that it is the most expensive way to go and if you can afford to throw away many thousands of dollars in your pursuit than boatbuilding is for you.You may be the greatist artisan ,working with concrete....but by your own admission you are no boatbuilder/designer.Thinking one relates to the other is apples to oranges.I am not telling you to stay away from boatbuilding if you are determined,however,you have years of research to do on costs,construction.....and when you are done you will have the money for your marine plywood which any novice builder would use. Good luck with your studies
