Plywood

Plywood – General

The development of marine plywood gave an immense boost to home boat building. The boats are almost always of chine form, with considerable scope for panel curvature while still making individual surfaces from ply sheet (developable). However, glued clinker and cold moulded ply give round bilge form. Some larger ply boats introduce compound curvature by building up selected areas (flare of bow, bilge panel) by small strips of thin material, building up against some local batten mould.
