I'm about halfway through my first build(s), which is a pair of LT17's. The problem is, I made the mistake of looking at some pics of strip built boats and I can't get those patterned decks out of my mind.
I have one deck on (S&G okoume) but the second boat is still an opportunity to try a stripped (hybrid) deck. If I take this on, how much time am I going to be adding to the project between cutting forms and strippingthe deck? I would definitely try one of those Navajo-inspired patterns but that's TBD.
How many feet of strip would be needed for an LT17 Deck only?
How much time am I in for?
Am I crazy? Talk me out of it if I am!
