"Hi Robert, Im all ears when people answer me in a decent way. I built a large box hanging between beam 2 and 3 on a lip with x3 25mm stainless safety pins on each beam. My box lasted 10 years but must be rebuilt as the frame was built from soft…"

"I am also rebuilding the boxes on my Pahi 42. Would suggest avoiding chopped strand because of poor strength to weight ratio. Skins of woven cloth on both sides is a good idea—especially for water and abrasion resistance. In fiberglass…"

"Smart arse, i happen to have built my 42ft not a 31 dingy. I used cloth, so why dont you crawl back into the hole you slithered out of?"

"If you were meaning fibreglass cloth in epoxy, that's a different thing.  Since you mentioned chopped strand that would indicate you don't know the difference between epoxy/fibreglass laminating and  fibreglass laminating. In…"

"Well exactly- you can't do a proper job with fibreglass by just layering onto thin ply. We have all seen some awful stuff done like that, it's very heavy, lumpy, and dirty and not strong at all. Not a good rep. for Wharram boats. Sorry to…"

"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."

Ply Construction

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.See More
