I am just about to start building my Kaholo from plans. Whilst I like the look of varnished ply, I though a WRC strip deck would be really nice.
My thought is to assemble the strips on oversize to the deck plan, and then trim to shape as I would ply. As the deck is glassed both sides, it should be exactly the same as building s strip kayak.
It will take a bit longer, but the results should be worth it, I think. Weight should be about the same, as the WRC I have is 3mm (in 12mm strips). Glassing, etc, would be done as per normal.
Interested to hear any opinions on this - especially any problems I might encounter.
