I just recieved and am beginning my Kaholo 14 kit build. In addition to the CLC manual I have read numerous builder suggestions regarding what surfaces might or might not need to be glassed.
Is there a straight forward way to determine what surfaces I should or should not glass as per the manual, or have most builder's stuck to CLC's guidelines with great results? What are the actual trade-offs of glassing or not glassing a particular surface? I understand "weight management" on a build is a combiination of a number of factors, not just the glass. Here are some specifics to my goals.
- Build a board that matches CLC's specs of 32lbs
- Have a board that may receive a day hatch with below-deck storage box
- I am 135lbs but want to have a board that accomodates heavier capacity
- Intend on using the board for a loooooong time as a fitness, touring and racing cruiser.
Thank you for the feedback!
Also on page 26 a sentence reads: "The "sheer edge of the"
What info, if any, is missing from there?
