          How much did it cost? Is the thickness of the wood to scale?

            68.00 today--butt I forgot to buy plywood for the decks. Only the hull planking needs to be scale thickness. I bought a bunch of bass wood to back the rib parts, and make the keel.

            • As I was able to get three ribs on each sheet--I still have two sheets left for decking

                  • Now I will begin padding the backs with 1/8" bass wood, to make a surface to glue and pin the hull planking and decking.
