In the past Jacques has said he wouldn't design one because he just doesn't know them; same story with me. I just don't know the type of boat and what makes a good one and what would be suitable. Sounds like there are other options out there for plans.

But buy your materials through the site :)

For some reason, I thought I already posted here. I understand that plascore 1" is a common use item in the drift boat world. You can get the sheets 5x10 and lay them on a jig and glass the outside. Then I think? the raw core edges are covered with ply sides.

This makes for a sturdier bottom than 12mm ply and is easier to accept the rocker wishes I believe.
