    Are pounce wheels appropriate for tracing full size plans onto okoume for stitch and glue boats? If so, are there any designs out there durable enough to use on plywood or would one have to create a pounce wheel to use?

    I have used a pounce wheel with pretty good success on frame plans for larger boats. The problem is that full size plans shrink and expand and you will need to be careful. Check the dimensions on the plan with what you are actually tracing.
