Working on the plans for my boat, I know where the beer
taps and the kegs will be located. And I got "Thinking"
that it would be kinda cool to do my lockers, galley
, and floors in compressed bamboo and bamboo ply wood.
Does anyone have anything on their boats made of this matterial? How does it wear?
Worse yet this got me wondering if there is a marine
"type" of bamboo plywood
. Bamboo plywood
it harder than oakum but just as flexible in sheets
of the same thickness. I need more info about how resistant to delamanation it is. Do you think I could build a hull
out of it (that would last)?
That in turn made me think about the mast
a laminated sika pine mast
can be lighter than a comparable aluminum
mast, what if... An engineered laminated bamboo mast? It would be as strong as oak, coming close to maple in hardness. Would that work you think?
Some of these are just brain farts but I haven't found much info about it online yet. I can't believe I am the first person to ponder this what if.
