Re: Woods Skoota 32DM

This boat was only designed in foam. There is no plywood version to date. Richard's Skoota 36 is bigger still and a fine vessel in ply. There are a couple builds underway; one might be close to finish. The Skoota 28 is specified in ply, but I wanted a boat that would sleep more people and that means...

Re: 99 Explorer 19tv restoration question

You won't need a ton of thixo unless you have lotsa voids on the deck edges. The hull sides create their own fillet angle.
