Thank you all for your help. This design is decades old and thus the wood choice is dated. One of the many reasons I come to the experts. Yes…that’s YOU! If there is a better choice of wood, you guys would know it. I’ve had suggestions of luan instead of ply etc. I don’t know if that is viable or not.

Also, I wanted this boat to be able to accommodate 2 people. So I figured I would enlarge it from 8 feet to 10 feet and maybe go a little wider. So, if going from 8 to 10 feet is a 25% increase in length, does that mean I go 25% wider and deeper???? I’m beginning to realize why I don’t sleep well!
