Re: Building my own dingy

Reality is, you could do it with ACX plywood, as long as it had exterior glue. One does not need to use okume plywood $$$$$$

One the other hand, if you wish to cover with a varnish equal, so you see the teak grain in the plywood, Okume is the way to go. But any 1/4 dg fir based marine ply or ext grade glue plywood would work.

Make sure you get the plans with full size patterns. Otherwise, you will spend a lot of time drafting things upward!
