Re: strip vs, plywood dec
Posted by John Beck on Nov 25, 2007
Greg, I've built a Chesapeake 16 with ply deck and SW17 hybrid. I'd say the hybrid is no harder, but it definitely takes MUCH more time, and it demands careful attention (equals time) to produce a good looking project. Start to finish the hybrid took 250 hours and about half that just for the deck. I'm happy I built the hybrid and was pleased with the results, but I probably wouldn't do it again.
