Re: 3 MM hull?

I have a few - 14 footers with 3 mm bottom panels. As with Dave, I don't use them in heavy surf or around the nasty rocks of Maine and Canada. I stiffened the cockpit floor with 4 oz. glass and added a small, stiff support under the seat.
On the clamps, I use 1/2" x 3/4 stock and smaller ring nails. Glassing was with squeegees to minimize epoxy use. Finished weight for a 14' kayak with a 25" beam: 31.5 lbs.
