I am getting ready to fiberglass the bottom of the boat. I am thinking of running a strip of fiberglass tape the full length of the keel as opposed to just at the stems. I think it will add to ruggedness of the keel as it encounters sandy and rocky beachings. Any thoughts.
Has anyone gone the epoxy graphite route on the bottom of their canoe? I have this treatment on both of my Kayaks (ducks) and it works well.
One last question, why not glass for the whole outside of the boat like on the Kayak kits??
