Is This Worth It?
Posted by Mac on Feb 14, 2005
My design (of a 17ft Light Touring 4mm Okoume kayak) being built for my 130lb wife doesn't call for fiberglassing inside the cockpit - just light fillets and 2" tape. The hull will be glassed with 6oz cloth, and the deck with 2oz..
I have a fair amount of 2oz cloth left over from my boat from last winter. Is there enough strength in 2oz to make it worth lining the cockpit with it? (and maybe the bottom panels inside the hatches?)
Thank's and have a great Valentine's Day!
