Did anyone ever build a ply P7? How do you go about building a ply hull? I guess you just have panals cut to shape and you bend it round a jig, glue and clamp.

All the P7's were foam sandwich, however King Tubby a P6 was I think the last ply boat built

Have a look at:
Building in Ply

Basically there is a lot of mesureing and templating and carefull cutting of wood to be done. Then some gluing then loads of frames to stiffen the panels. Foam is much eisier

would it be possible to build a wooden hulled boat that would take the strains from an 05 rules cherub?  i know that time wise this could take longer and be a lot more complicated, think i would be more inclined to throw a £100 or so at a wooden design hull as a bit of a laugh rather than spending many pennies on a carbon foam boat.
