Why not match the bottom to the same wood that's in the sides ? Or use a good marine grade board that's waterproofed since the bottom gets the most wear and tear of any part. I'm working under the assumption you are going to paint the boat and not epoxy and glass it.

Boat is looking good. The planks give it a traditional and simple appeal.
What plywood did you decide for the floor?

Like most things in life it's not hard when done right , can be a real pain when done wrong. Wasn't that a lot of help .... ;):rolleyes:o_O
One thing it does do , adds a lot more $$$$ to the cost and additional time in making the boat.
There are steps to the process that needs to be followed. There are also time restrictions on a couple steps that have to held to.

I'm sort of partial to the one I designed back in 2003.

After reading about your build, I ordered the PDF download and site said I’d receive a email within 2 hours with the PDF attached. They said to contact them if I haven’t received email within 2 hours, well after 48 hours I have yet to receive anything, not even a response from the site.

Not the best customer service, that’s for sure.

I can't help you about getting the plans but welcome to the site. I think Duck Calls and Podnus both had some delays getting their plans. Sounds like the site is a little too optimistic. Have you tried contacting them again?
Pleas post about your build. I like the design and am looking forward to seeing another one come together.

Welcome to the forum, some of the folks on here are real knowledgeable and will share that knowledge if you ask. Good luck

Customer service does not seam to speedy from them , from what I have read on here. Hopefully the plans will arrive soon so you can start the build.
Out of curiosity have you looked at boat plans from Uncle Johns General Store or Matt's at Jem Watrcraft ? Those are two folks I have done business with and are extremely reliable.
