      Gary, thank you.that is what I am leaning towards because it will get the most wear and tear from use . Yes I am planning on putting a layer of fiberglass cloth on the outside bottom panel .

I'm assuming your glassing the outside bottom too for abrasion resistance and it's amazing how much stiffer the boat gets with a layer of glass on each side of the bottom.

I thought about doubling up the thickness by just putting in another layer of the sure ply in that area since it will get the most abuse or possibly just putting a layer of fiberglass cloth and resin on that open area.
