So I am planning on a minor redesign of my main cockpit/cabin area of my boat. The main project
is to build a set of benches which will also include storage
underneat the seats, would also like to build a small table.
While I am very crafty with wood and have a lot of experience in working with wood and building wood structures and what not what I have zero experience in is actually picking out the types of wood to use. So I was wondering what someone would recommend for such a project
? This area is totally covered/enclosed and would likely only see water
exposure from wet clothing
What type and grade of plywood
is best used?
What type and grade of wood is best used for the main structure of the benches?
What thickness of each is appropriate?
I am also planning on a painted finish and was wondering if I should go to the expense and hassle of covering with fiberglass
or if just a good layer of epoxy
based primer and paint
