Douglas Fir Plywood Association

Tacoma, Washington

The Douglas Fir Plywood Association, often abbreviated as DFPA, promoted the use of Douglas-fir plywood in boat construction. In 1957, they offered over 40 boat plans at the low cost of $0.25 per plan. Many of their designs were by David Beach, a naval architect based in New Orleans, Louisiana. They also employed Edwin Monk, a Seattle-based naval architect. In 1958, the industry association ran a series of ads showing commercially available recreational boats constructed of their plywood.
