Re: 6oz satin sglass/5oz

Posted by Mike on Jun 28, 2005


On my current kayak, I will be using one layer of 5 oz satin e-glass on the inside, and two layers of 6 oz satin s-glass on the outside of the hull, and one layer of 6 oz satin s-glass on the outside of the deck. I will also be adding extra reinforcements in areas of high stress.

Ted Henry did some ding tests of several types of glass and found that the 6 oz satin s-glass survived dings much better than everything else. It is a bugger to wet out though.

This is for a Night Heron that I plan too be using in rough water, including surf and possibly rock gardens.

P.S. We paddled out to Blake Island together, when you were out here in Washington State a few years ago. Things have changed quite a bit, Tammy and I now have two little toddlers running around.
