Good job on the planking and thought the video and narration were well done.

Certainly no added flotation from that project! those bamboo boards actually sink!

Looks good. Not quite the look I would have gone for, but good nonetheless.

One question: I've used bamboo plywood for a couple of projects (around the house, not on the boat). I found that in that context bamboo was both heavy as hell and dulled saw blades and router bits like nothing else I've ever come across. Of course, bamboo plywood is a bit different from the sort of planks you used. But did you find it to be inordinately heavy and/or tool dulling?

Bamboo Planking

Hi everyone, I recently made this video for a project replacing my hull boards and headliners with bamboo planks. It came out very nice. Let me know what you think.
