Fir is more likely to check and a little heavier but still better than exterior pine ply. You can see what World Panel Products will ship it for. They are typically cheaper on shipping than I can drive there for.

Thanks Brad. I've read the plans, maybe 10 times. One question: how do you get the 'curve' in the hull at the bow if the sides aren't curved?

The angle on the chine and the taper in of the bow floor piece create the rocker. As you pull the chine in to the floor and attach it, it will pull the floor up.

Gottcha. Thanks for your willingness to help out others. I have done ALOT of woodworking, but never a boat.

One more question: I have two sets of plans, Big Momma and Duckhunter. If I wanted to lengthen either boat, would I just divide my 'new' length by the original plans length and then multiply the other dimensions (width and length, not heights) by that ratio?
