I’m in need of info concerning the building of a center box between beams 2 and 3 on a Pahi 42ft. It is not about building of the box, but that of material used.

My old one needs to be rebuilt because of rot. I used 9mm ply but was wondering if I can build it lighter with the same strength by using 6mm ply covered in chop strand or woven fibre. The fibre on the outside will also protect against water splashes? Any help will be much appreciated.

Your solution would be regarded as a "bodge" in my eyes, though I am not over familliar with that boat.

You know that, so you asked for someone to tell you  (honestly?) ..........6mm is dinghy material.
