      It varies by 10x or more depending on whether you can store the boat
      under cover, and also depending on the climate.

      Have you considered MDO overlay plywood? That is what I would choose
      to economize and omit fiberglass. But, when I asked Phil Bolger this
      question for Topaz, he unequivocally advised against using MDO plywood
      and wrote advised that I should use epoxy & fiberglass sheathing.
