LIST OF TIMBER MATERIALS FOR HULL, DECK & BULKHEADS

The following list of materials is approximate and intended for calculation of approximate costs. Lengths and areas are based on the actual amounts to be used in the vessel without any allowance for building stocks, temporary framing, bracing etc nor for wastage in cutting to size and shape as required. Wastage is dependent on the skill of the builder but can be expected to be under 10% on lengths and 15-20% on plywood.
