Topic : 3285 Building Materiels

I've just acquired an old Bob Hoare NSM2 (3285). It has some poor condition ply decks which I plan to replace. However, the original measurement certificate says that both the shell and the DECK material were G.R.P. sandwich. Is this possible or likely? I was thinking of redecking using stripy sapele ply - does anyone know of a good supplier of such stuff? Or does anyone have any views on redecking using G.R.P. sandwich?

Is this boat not Venus in Blue Jeans which Bob Baker owned for some years?  I never saw any other decks on it than the ply ones, going back to 1996.

This is indeed Venus in Blue Jeans, originally owned by Bob Baker. Thanks for the info. Perhaps Bob could confirm (if possible?)

Sorry - that should have been "formerly owned" not "originally owned". The original owner was A. L. Lock.
