Lite-ply vs. Balsa...

When constructing a hull assembly, can the keel and bulkheads be made of Balsa or is it best to make them from Lite-ply? Just wondering how much stronger the Lite-ply is than Balsa and if an all Balsa hull would be weak. Been doing some reading and have seen a few folks say that Lite-ply is no stronger than Balsa and harder to cut/clean up. Any opinions on building an all balsa hull for something in the 30" range?
