Please note that i live in Scotland.
I'm an experienced woodworker, but first time boat builder. I've bought the plans for the Chesapeake with the intention of starting construction shortly.
Unfortunately i've encountered a problem - i can get marine grade ply ok, but the smallest thickness is 6mm. I can't find anyone within driving distance who can supply smaller and having it delivered would double the construction costs of the yak.
Question - can i get away with building the boat completely in 6mm or should i use thin exterior grade ply for the deck?
