First you need to tell us how much you already cut off.

And please focus here.
It often depends when it was made. A new bendy boat will only last until you put it on the rocks. Hold them up to the light, and you can see right through them!
Fibre glass boats built back in the seventies and early eighties, however, were made very thick, since the builders back then didn't really know how strong this new material was; so there are many around that are holding up well... although they will often be in need of interior
refurbishing if someone hasn't already done so. Oh, and re-wiring!
