On a bigger boat or a deep fin keel boat, maybe not so confident, clearly the furnishing glassed into the hull would add some strength here and there, especially to stiffen the "floor' which helps support keel loads (flexing,) but with the poor way Bayliner tabbed mine in - not very much!

Now, with the aft and vee berth structures, compression post and chain plates reinforced. Do you think i can get away without any more structures in the middle of the boat? Thanks also for the refresher in fiberglassing.
