I'm looking for a seller of strip wood for hull planking, decking ect. probably better if there online since I'm in Australia.
also, how do you bend the strip wood to plank the hull?

TO bend strip wood place it in a container with ammonia ,and let it soak it for a few hours or over night .  A length of ABS pipe with two caps works well for this purpose .    PUFFIN
