    Welcome Rippin lips!
    I am starting on my 18' drift boat this month with the same process of wood glassed. I will be using ABA marine ply for the hull from SBS which is running in the 60-70 range per sheet. For the interior components I will be using AB exterior ply. The plans that I am using are from Glen L Designs. https://www.boatdesigns.com/departments.asp?dept=2
    Hope this helps.
    Good luck!

    www.montanaboatbuilders.com has some nice plans. PlasChem in Anchorage and CAC Plastics in Wasilla are good sources for epoxy and related items. I've been looking to build a drift boat also. This winter the kids and I are going to build a few 6' long row boats for local lakes first.
