Re: Skin-on-Frame: Green-white oak

Thanks Dan, good information there.
I have figured with the strength of white oak I'd downsize the dimensions a bit.
I have the boat mocked up 3-D with stations and string and have a shape I'm happy with.
Now I'm starting to source wood, ?I have a few short white oak boards that are 4 year air dried to experiment with.
I'll mill some ribs in a few different dimension and test bending and strength till I find what I think will work.
I'm familiar with wood and building, I'm willing to trade a little weight for strength, I also like the idea of using all one type of wood for the framing.
This will be my first SOF build, but I'm confident I can turn out a usable boat, using green wood was the unknown.
I'm more confident with that after the info I've gathered here.
