      Nice job on Extream Hope Steve. In the lady I am thinking twolayers
      of 3/8" may be enough for the bottom cold molded with the sides 1/2"
      deck 1/2" the cabin sides 3/8" and 1/2" cabbin top all depending on
      stringer and frame spacing. Heavy glass the bottom and sides with 16-
      18Oz. of glass deck and cabbin top with 6 Oz. and cabbin sides with 3-
      3.5 Oz. I would do the hull upside down it makes cold molding and
      glassing easyer. --- In AtkinBoats@yahoogroups.com, "Steve"
