Default 60" maxcat

Hi guys,
I could use some advice. I've got my plans and egar to start building.
My question is what thickness ply should I use for the frame?
Alot of guys talk skin ( 1/8 for sponsons 1/6 for tunnel and sides and 1/8 for top )
But no one seems to mention the frame work.
I plan on running twins with stingers either gas or electric havent decided.
any and all imput would be appreciated.
Thanx James

Hi all,
After a little resizing of the plans and I am now at 54".
It apoers that all measurements are roughly 1/8" for frames and 3 hull sides 1/8 each add up nicely.
Well on my way to a water jet shop I do business with to see about turning the drawing into a cad program so he can cut the parts.
I'm looking a canopy/ cowling for this boat.
So i'm open for suggestions.
Thx James
