I can getting to point of my chesepeake 17 build where I really need to make decision of how I will do the cockpit coaming. Heres the thing, I was able to get my Okume Ply from a local guy on craigslist that had 3 extra sheets from a build he did. So, I have had enough Okume to do the whole kayak and now I do not have enough to do the coaming. I do not know of a local vendor that carries Okume near Hartford CT. I need to purchase the coaming and spacers for over $100 shipped from CLC or get some more Okume to make them. Any suggestions?
