Re: 3mm hull
Posted by LeeG on Mar 1, 2005
that first Patuxent 17 I made had a 3mm deck "for light weight",,but between a first builders understanding of the materials, the use of doubled tape on the interior, big end pours,AND subsequent reinforcements to handle open bay use it ended up weighing 55lbs. Somehow that 1mm didn't save much weight.
