Re: S&G Night Heron

I've read that some guys can get to 35-lbs by taking measures not considered drastic, like using lighter cloth to minimize epoxy absorbtion. Lighter weight = less strength but a boat built using 4-oz glass isn't going to be a weakling, just not as strong as one built with 6-oz glass. I plan on building my S&G Night Heron with 4-oz glass and I won't be messing with rapids/rocks/gravel. I will, however, take it out on a bad day at the lake.
