balsa marine ply??

Posted by Ray on Aug 20, 2004

Hi folks

The post man has just delivered plans to build chesapeake 17. Exciting or what ? Am starting researching grades of marine ply. Okoume seems the standard - I have found a balsa and birch marine ply. Has anyone experience of using different types ? the balsa seems very interesting to to weight advantage. Does anyone have opinion on this? all the best ray from tynemouth, england
