Re: XF 20 Build

White oak is what boat builders use . Red oak because of the grain structure soaks up a ton of water .
If you cover it with glass and epoxy i guess it would be alright but why take a chance when there are
better options out there .

Re: V12 - Divinycell vs Plywood

In small boats there would be no weight advantage and would cost more to build " more epoxy and glass ".
In bigger boats you would see a much bigger weight advantage but it still costs more to build and some
people do not like wood.
