Kevlar KM2 is elastic whilest glasfibre with gelcote is rigid. If one fix Kevlar to the ouside of the hull
and you hit a floating object the Kevlar will expand inward causing the galss to crack and leak? If you stick kevlar in the inside the glas will rapture inwards as the object penetrate and the kevlar should strech, question is will kevlar keep the water
out while expanded? It somehow seem like a question of youre damned if you do and damed if you don't!
IIFC there was a thread a year to three ago where this was discussed in some depth
. I think the topic revolved around ice stregthening of a hull
, but it is the same concept
Again, IIRC, someone with more experience seemed to think that the kevlar was not such a good idea.
