A Photo & Discussion Forum for Wharram Design Enthusiasts
I am going to build a Tiki 26 and trying to source the wood.
In the study guide it says 6mm ply WBP exterior, OR Marine ply.
I wrote to Wharram, and they say only use marine ply.
At 52 pound a piece from the uk (I am in Denmark)
I think its really pushing my budget too far, 25 ound would be ok..
Whats your experience?
Can I use a good WBP thats well tested (I plan to boil it of course)
A big DON"T. It's OK to put a layer of Light glass cloth on the outside. But don't use polyester resin to bond the cloth. Use only a good quality thin Epoxy. If you do use polyester you will live to regret it.
Don't ask how I know. :(
