Re: Our Project Boat

Yes it is quite a bit of glass but we have two guys in our family that are 250 odd pounds and tend to be a wee bit heavy footed so to speak, so I was keen for the glass not to give way or crack the glue join between the laminates of ply when they are up front pulling up the pick or changing sails etc. I would've happily laid up less glass if we had of glassed in a hardwood deck beam but we couldn't find a short length of anything suitable to use.
