Shearwater cockpit glass

Posted by Ryan Sharrow on Jan 27, 2006

I'm about halfway through building a shearwater, and the kit is going together so easily!! I have just a few questions that I was wondering if anyone could address. I am 6'1" 195 lbs, and I am wondering if only one layer of fiberglass in the cockpit is enough or if I would benefit from another layer. I am also trying to construct the hatch covers to avoid external hardware. Any ideas? Anyone seen versions that look good but are also practical? Thanks for any help you guys can give me!!
