    Well I got the first later of planking finished up. Got the hatch covers started . The build is going good so far. Has anyone seen this Taiwan marking on a Dumas kit...its a first for me. The die cuts are sloppy. I wonder why an American company would do this. Is it a fake?๐Ÿ˜”

    Hi RR this might help, - https://www.iketrading.com/index.php/products/imported-plywo...

    A lot of ply comes from Taiwan, Malaysia, Indonesia, Pacific Islands, Vietnam etc,- usually good stuff. They have a lot of the best woods for ply.

    Well I had 1 more full day of working before the vaca... Got the birch plywood planking on the hull done. Got quite a bit of the upper structure and engine bay finished. What is the best sealer to use on the inside hull before I plank the fo'c'sle deck? Epoxy? Resin? Sanding sealer? Thanks, Dave

    Looks Good, Dave.
    I use penetrating epoxy used to restore rotted wood.
    It is made by West and Total Boat both available thru Amazon.

    Hey guys, pulled another old Dumas kit from the pile. This is my first large scale mahogany planked boat build. Hope I can get through it without to much trouble. Going with a 2s battery, 550 brushed motor and speed control from traxxas. Got all the framework and some planking done. I will update this blog as I go. Thanks to all who have helped me...Dave
