For some new parts of the boat I needed wood. The rudder blade and the daggerboard are 12 mm okoume plywood and the seats 18 mm. It wasn't easy to find a supplier of this wood that wanted to sell less the the common 250 x 122 cm. When the employee helped me with loading the boards in my car, the car appeared to be too small. As a service they trasnported it in their own car to my shed. Yesterday I drew the lines of the parts on the wood and sew some parts.

And after emailing Chesapeak and studying the manual, I now know what to buy regarding the glassfiber cloth and the epoxy stuff. I hope to be able to buy it online tonight.

To get an idea of the boat: here is a little video from YouTube.
