Re: Substituting 6mm for
Posted by Steve Miller on Jul 9, 2004
Looking at the Mill Creek 13 (built from plans too) hanging in my garage tells me that the bottom doesn't matter but the bilge panels do - at each end. How do you plan on making the transition from 4mm to 6mm at the stems? The joints there are basically straight on and thickness will be an issue. The 6mm should make the hull shape bends ok but you will have a heavy boat. Maybe 30% more for the extra panels. The Mill Creek is not a light boat to start with.
