Hey Matt! I was going to start your other Touring Pirogue after the first of the year. How much more difficult and how much time time is added to the build on this pirogue VS. your original Touring Pirogue?

OK...I'm looking over the plans and will scrounge wood later this week. How thick of a plywood should I make the frames from???
I'll be using 1/4" Luan for the boat itself.

Went looking for some ply this morning so I could get a start on mine. Nothing that looked any good. Looks like I'll be heading to Houston the first chance I get on a week day to chase me down some okoume. But, like 'Yak, make the form frames outa 1/4" or what for best results... Jimmy W and Mick, your advice?

I just used some old 1/2 inch OSB that I had laying around for the temp frames. BTW I never did wire the tumblehome panels to the frames, only the lower side panels. I did cut out the frames from the 3/16 ply that I used for the rest of the boat and then used them as patterns for the OSB.

Dad,

When I built Robin's P5, (very similar boat) I only had 1/8" ply for the boat and the temp frames and that is what I used.

Heavier would be better, but you can get away with the light stuff too.

Matt, Clearly, this one is another winner. Congratulations mate. :D 8)
