Re: plywood joints for Thunderbird class

If puzzle joints require epoxy/fiberglass layers on both sides of the plank, how do you handle laying up the planks on an already faired hull, given the added thickness of the inside epoxied joint?

Attaching planking with fiberglassed joints

If the inside, the concave side (side attached to stringers)plank joints are also to be fiberglassed using either butt or puzzle joints, how do you handle attaching the planks to the already faired hull structure, given that you now have additional material at each joint?

Re: plywood joints for Thunderbird class

Yes. The planking is epoxy glued to the stringers and to each bulkhead notch. Just for comparison, what would you charge, materials, puzzleing, and shipping to ZIP 80456 (Jefferson, Colorado ) for 2 each, 1/2 in x 4 ft x 26 ft and 2 each 1/2 in x 4 ft x 28 ft? Larry

Re: plywood joints for Thunderbird class

I already have 16 sheets of 1/2 x 4 ft x 8 ft exterior, marine grade plywood. The boat is 26 ft - 6 bulkheads and the transom. 6 stringers (3 or each side of the keel)to support the bottom planking and 3 stringers on each side to support the side planking. Stringers are spliced, alaska yellow cedar....
