Just bought plans for the Woodduck 14, and am eager to start. i found a local source for 1088 4 mil ply, but it's Meranti instead of Okoume. Seems the same to me, it all looks like mahogany plywood. Will this make the same bends OK? Also, been reading posts, and wondering if I overdid it on the 14' Woodduck vs 12' I'm 6'-2" and 195lb, and want to occasionally take this camping, and maybe have our 40 lb dog in with me from time to time. let me know what y'all think.
