That left 9 with concerns of strengthening which resulted “more glass” solution. I think we are good though as now the entire hull is one size ply. I may clean out Jeff’s 9mm at some point. :)

And yes on sourcing. The architect is polish. Poland still makes 10mm ply. He offered to supply until the price of shipping and import was raised. It isn’t just US but many other build area only have imperial equivalents available.

10-4~good luck

Plans are available to purchase March 21. That seems simple... Except the class originator is Australian, the plan developer is in Poland, the hosting is in the US. So when exactly does March 21 start?

I HAVE AN ORDER!!!

Too bad I have to wait to Monday to get the formal purchase completed. US banking laws seem to force manual interaction for international money wires. Monday I'll work with a bank to get the Euros over to them. Then comes the interaction with designer and the next waiting games start.

Thanks to some research an assistance from Jane (that name should ring a bell with GGR followers) I am confirmed with my purchase of the plans!

Now we wait for the designer to get back with the needed "check list" and for the plans to show up at my door. Can't want to get this show on the road!

This is fun! Seriously.

Being in the ground floor of the a new class means there are things that need figured out. Ply thickness availability is driving changes. Lack of built hulls representing various skill levels make weight minimums unknown at this point. All this makes questions like ply type selection difficult. If I can get to weigh in early enough then I’m an input to the decision making. If I’m late and light then I’ve potentially wasted dollars on oakume (looks like the EU sika builds are mostly pine based from the photos).

At this point We’ve reduced the ply to
1 sheet 6mm
23 sheets 9mm

Need plans to see need for dimensioned lumber and gusset ply. Getting closer!

Even if your hull ends up light, would that not be better? I assume you would then be required to add additional ballast, which could be located to best effect, rather than distributed more or less evenly throughout the hull? Honestly it sounds like kind of a shit show if the designer didn't even take into account what materials would be commonly available to the majority of prospective builders of an international class boat. I could not see Jacques making that mistake. :lol:
