Oops, I'm building a Tolman and this thread is about the GA. That's a BIG boat and from what I've heard the plans are very well done. I think I'd build that per specs.

I think the book says you could exterior grade ply. I built a 15' skiff a few years ago using shit ply, beat the crap out of it, stored outside in the sun and rain and it's still as good as new. Everyone must draw their own line. I also used pl to laminate my shelfs, glue stringers, and attatched spray rails. All of which were later fillet, taped, and glass. I sleep like a baby. Not sure id be confident using pl on its own in an exposed area.

I am getting close to that point of gluing the bottom on. You have given me piece of mind and have helped me decide to use epoxy as well and not the PL.

Curious on the reason for this. I've been an advocate of using this wherever the joint will have subsequent fillets with epoxy and wood flour or other thickener.

As an adhesive, it is stronger than the glue holding the plywood laminations together.
If something isn't broken, why fix it? There are many things that can be modified in the build process, why change something that has been proven over and over for many years to work and work well with a product which was not designed for the purpose not rated for submersion and has not been field tested anywhere near the extent that epoxy has been? Instead, spend the effort changing things that are failing or not living up to expectations. This is my opinion, and my opinion only! I have used construction adhesive for over thirty years and it is great stuff, just not on my boat. Why not use a lesser grade of plywood, something without marine glue? It is going to be encapsulated in epoxy anyway, so basically I am asking where do you draw the line?

Hi Guys
I finished my 26 jumbo cc in Dec 2013.  Took it  to marathon fla after a lake test on dec 21. Cant tell you how much I love this boat. 
Fished all winter then hauled back to champlain for 2014 summer. Back to the keys for 2014/2015 winter'left her there for the summer and will be headed back in nov . I have fished it over 100 days some times out to 26 miles. It has a Bedoe bow and is nice and dry. Tows like its not there with my 1500GMC (except at the pump).I don't think I could have built it without all the info from this great site. I'm now working on finishing xray's GA and hope to splash her summer of 2016. i'll try to post a link to Photo Bucket but I'm not to good with these darn things
Thanks
Roland

Pulled her out of the shop today to paint the bottom with Pettit high build epoxy, that is some toxic stuff. Once I got her outside, I went back in and mixed up some paint. When I went back outside, it was raining! Go figure, all summer no rain at all, not a drop, but go to paint the bottom and it rains... So in between showers I toweled it off and got it done.

Hah. I'm just up the  road in Wilsonville and had the same experience more or less. My Jumbo hull was sitting out on it's trailer, covered in tarps while I build a temporary structure to finish it in. I remove the tarps temporarily and bingo...the first rains in recent memory arrive.

By the way, if you ever need an extra hand, let me know, it's not that far. Glad to help out.

Wondering if anybody knows where is a good source of used Wallas stoves?  Also, an idea of prices?  Looking for heater/stove combo.  Starting the research on used prices etc.

Thanks

Ahhh yes, mother nature. She put a real nice mayfly in my glass that I left in for future generations to enjoy. I'm sure there will be many more. The boat looks GREAT with the one thing that is not going south on me, my eyes. I am going deaf (ask my wife, she'll tell you) and what hair I have left is graying, so don't feel bad about your eyesight.
Grocery store glasses are cheap. I look forward to see your flip and the satisfaction you get from it.
