I am a semi retired GOM Fast Supply boat captain with a
Just purchased new project-32 woodie. Hull is great exc. previous owner caulked with something out of a tube. Lehman is stuck. Cabin sides are
rotten. In researching the cabin construction on GB site I find that plywood support is "meranti". Meranti does not have much decay resistance which explains why so many gb woodies have cabin rot issues.
I have found a quantity of 1'' cypress planks @ $2.50 bf and plan to plank
the entire cabin sides wrather than the plywood as original. Look forward to the good info on this site.
