Putty and sanding - Posted: 28th Jan 2019
Did some putty job on both sides. Still a lot sanding to do. And put some white paint inside. It will make it look bit clean and also work as a layer. Will prevent the water reaching ply.
Beside of it a small cabin cruiser.

Sports cruiser "ALI" - Posted: 24th Jan 2019
Started this sports cruiser 2 days ago. Here we dont have balsa so im using whats available.
I hsed ply for my keel and bulkheads.
Ply doesnt work great with ca glue, but its okay. I will use pvc for the planking.
I hope i will get some ideas and you will fix me whereverim wrong.

Planking by 2mm pvc. Its not smooth. I normally use the paint putty,with cement powder. Its good and waterproof.

I know what you say about CA glue with plywood, but once you have put the CA glue on I found a quick squirt of CA accelerator set's the glue quicker and works better for plywood. Have you given that a try? I After the first application of Ca and a squirt I then gave it a second smaller drip of glue and another squirt. It worked well for me.

I actually drop small amount first then i use my 120number sand paper on the joint to genarate some ply powder then put another drip on it.
The powder works great.
But i will try your idea 😎
