Stitch spacing on a tv-29

The plans say I can use 12 inch stitch spacing on pirogue. Is this true for my tv-29?

Also I thought I would us washers for my wire tie spacers. What size and thickness should I use?

The design doesn't matter so much as the thickness of plywood...with some exceptions. 10"-12" should work on yours just fine.

If you choose to do the optional stitch spaces, a fender washer or other thin washer will work. Thin as you can get it.

Thanks,

I made my panels out of cedar strips. I will go with 10 inches.
