Plywood Arrives!

The plywood was delivered late this afternoon. 9 sheets of 1088 Meranti well packaged on a pallet. 10 days after ordering it from Noah’s Marine in Toronto. Everything looks good. I’m really excited. I wish I didn’t have to wait until spring to get started on this project. There it is, on the floor beside the van.

Plywood purchased

On Thursday evening I visited Noah’s Marine website and saw that they had 1088 Meranti plywood on sale for 10% off. I hadn’t planned on buying plywood until the spring but decided to go for it so that I wouldn’t be stewing about whether to buy from the States at a bit less money or buy from another place in Canada, etc, etc. Now, the deed is done. It will cost me about $820 CAD delivered to my house from Ontario.  

Now, I really feel committed to building this boat. I am good at reading about building things but not good at actually getting down to it and following through.

This should be great material to work with. I hope that I can do it justice.
