Re: 3 mm okoume

Posted by Charlie on Apr 3, 2006

A sheet of 3mm okoume is 8 lb and a sheet and 4mm is about 12 lb. Don't know if the weight savings with 3mm is very large. I have a Yare that is 3mm top and bottom. The reason the boat is stiff and strong is due to the fact that all the panels are heavily curved. The cockpit area has to be well supported with deck beams and carlins which may preclude any big weight savings.
