    If plywood has gone the way of most timber products, quality wise, in recent decades, then he might have changed his mind, but I guess if you shop around carefully, you improve yoiur chances.

    I've looked up the Dix radius chine plywood article Capt Ronrico mentioned 13, Wynand is right 15, the article is about Dudley's own Didi 38 'Black Cat' which was launched in 1995.

    Small Trimaran Design ---> Construction Issues ---> Construction Methods ---> Radiused Chine quoted

    Dix Design ---> Didi 38 ---> Radius Chine Plywood Boat Building

    Since the above is specific about an 38' it well could be there's another truth for greater lengths...

    George Buehler ---> 70’ 8” Wunderburg ---> Random Thoughts ---> Wood Decks on Steel Hulls quoted
