I don't think glass is needed structurally on the inside unless you've rounded down the coaming and stack a huge amount to where it's significantly less than 1/2" wide. I've wrapped it down because I was too lazy to trim a taped edge part way down. The effort to round over the inside edge well is a little greater than glassing on a few grams of glass. Another reason for glassing the coaming besides the obvious one of dragging kayaks across your lap for rescues is to imagine what happens if you were to roll the kayak a few times over the asphalt and see what gets hit. Or what part of your kayak hits another if loaded on a car,,it's the top of the coaming.
