Kudzu Short Shot with plywood two-part coaming. I am ready to apply skin. Want to use double-corded stitching. Having watched Kudzu Craft double-corded video and others, it looks like I should start from the coaming and work towards ends, which is opposite of what is described in manual. I am thinking to: clamp fabric to keel at bow and stern, pulled tight (but NOT sew pockets); pin along keel; lash lower coaming ring in place; place upper coaming ring and clamp with strap; pull fabric tight through coaming ring, clamp and screw, working from sides toward center. I've notched upper coaming ring so cords can pass through. Then start the double-corded stitch from coaming to ends of boat. Will that work?
First time boat builder here with a few questions, getting ready to build a Spindrift 10.
First, does anyone know of a lumber yard in South-central Louisiana that carries 6mm Okume plywood? (I am in Baton Rouge) I have contacted a few so far. Riverside Lumber in New Orleans carries Meranti, but I was hoping to save the weight by building with Okume. I haven't found anyone else who even carries Meranti. I will be transporting the boat on top of the family van, and eventually it will become my kids' boat, so light weight is important.
Second, has anyone used Cypress for the solid wood parts? It seems like it would work fine and give the boat a nice Louisiana look. And it is easy to find around here...
