Hi all, Will be getting ply soon and start to cut out. I would just like to say how helpful Morten has been, i wanted to change the design so the outboard motor fits on the transom, Morten sent new drawings within 72 hrs, great service. Really looking forward to getting started. The plans call for 12mm ply for bulkheads, i have some 6mm ply which i bought for some previous plans which i couldn't understand so i didn't go ahead with it, can i glue them together to make 12mm or am i better to just buy 12mm and use the 6mm for something else, i don't mind buying new ply if it will be better. Will see if i can post some photos when i get going. Morten, thanks again for great plans and fantastic service

Hi Ray,

Thank you very much for the nice words :)

I think it will be best to get a finished 12 mm plywood sheet instead of using the two 6 mm. I will not recommend gluing two 6 mm unless you have some kind of press tool for the gluing. You could end up with a very warped sheet of 12 mm plywood.
