Basic Materials List – Tread Lightly
This list has been prepared by Ross Lillistone of Bayside Wooden Boats as a service to plans customers. It should not be taken as either a complete or as an exclusive list. Sizes of materials are based on Australian standard DAR (dressed-all-round) dimensions, and should be considered advisory only. Quantities are based on a detailed examination of the printed plans, not from an actual boatbuilding project. Plywood sheet usage has been calculated from the sum of the surface areas of individual components, and the addition of allowances. It has been adjusted to take into account estimations based on my experience with similar projects. Plywood sheet sizes are assumed to be 2440mm x 1220mm, and MDF panel sizes to be 2400mm x 1200mm – however, the plywood quantity should be adequate if 2400mm x 1200mm sheets are used. Epoxy quantity is an estimate based on similar projects, and should not be taken as prescriptive. No allowance has been made for fastenings or paint.
The ruling consideration should be, “If in doubt, use common sense; or contact the designer (John Welsford); Bayside Wooden Boats; or other trusted supplier such as Boatcraft Pacific”.
