The forum upgrade is complete. It was very uneventful. Please post issues in this thread.

Due to a high level of "bad actor" traffic on the community site Jaysen is implementing a forced verification to confirm that you are a human. This is a PITA and he hates it too. The 3.2 seconds it takes for the one time you have to do it every couple hours is much preferable to the hours we are losing to morons clogging the CPU on the servers. Jaysen is still looking to solve this a bit less intrusively and without cost to BBC. Hopefully the magic solution will appear out of thin air soon. Jaysen is already annoyed.

Questions for Jacques - Moonfish

Post by Jeff »

This question arrived via email overnight: "Hi there from Australia. I have just purchased the plans for a moonfish and seeing that I already have quite a few sheets of 4mm marine ply . I would like to ask if it would be ok to substitute 6mm stated in the plans to 4mm. Obviously dimensions would be allowed for and the boat would have to be treated with a bit more care . Maybe a few stringers here and there. But would it be structurally strong enough . I looked thru the forum couldnt find any links. Im better with my hands than with computers. Thanks for any advise in advance. regards Dan." Jeff

You can, no problem at all. Do not worry about the small 2 mm difference in thickness. Use the same dimensions.
