    hello,

    few years ago I have read the Gougeon brothers book about epoxy boatbuilding. A chapter covered the boatbuidling method that uses two ply panels to construct a round shaped hull. There is a more advanced method described by Kurt Hughes called the cylinder mold method. It seems that the method is mainly used for multihulls. Does anyone have any experience in using this method to construct monohulls of larger size ( > 30')?

    Thanks

    Simon

    Dudley Dix has som nice designs for plywood.
    I believe his technique is somewhat similar (I have not read read the book though).
    His hulls look pretty nice considering it's all plywood sheet material.
