Speed Strip is the ultimate strip planking material for many applications in boat building, repair and restoration. It is the fastest, easiest way to build a strong, rigid, lightweight wooden structure. Principal uses include hull and plug construction, decks, hardtops, and cabin sides.

Speed Strip has been successfully used to build mono-hulls and multi-hulls up to 200 feet in length.

Speed Strip Planking System utilizes a unique, interlocking tongue-and-groove profile. The profile, which is precision machined to a tolerance 0.015 mm, allows room for the tongue to rotate up to 7 degrees while holding firm in the groove.
Even with complex shapes, Speed Strip planks snap together quickly and securely without a tendency to override each other when twisted. The result - tight inside joints, and minimal gaps on the outside curve.
The Speed Strip system provides major savings in materials and labor. It requires half the mold stations and frames, minimum fastenings and less glue (because of reduced glue squeeze-out). The self-fairing, precision fit of Speed Strip planks eliminates the need for scarfing and edge fastening, while cutting fairing and cleanup time by up to 70%. The simplicity of the process not only reduces labor hours, but also allows for the use of less skilled labor.

Speed Strip is manufactured and supplied in the United States exclusively by Maritime Wood Products under license from Joseph Thompson & Co. Ltd. Of Sunderland, England.
