Why not match the bottom to the same wood that's in the sides ? Or use a good marine grade board that's waterproofed since the bottom gets the most wear and tear of any part. I'm working under the assumption you are going to paint the boat and not epoxy and glass it.

Boat is looking good. The planks give it a traditional and simple appeal.
What plywood did you decide for the floor?

Like most things in life it's not hard when done right , can be a real pain when done wrong. Wasn't that a lot of help .... ;):rolleyes:o_O
One thing it does do , adds a lot more $$$$ to the cost and additional time in making the boat.
There are steps to the process that needs to be followed. There are also time restrictions on a couple steps that have to held to.

I'm sort of partial to the one I designed back in 2003.
