      I would doubt that epoxy alone would make the boards much stiffer,
      but I think a layer of glass in epoxy would stiffen them alot. You
      could experiment. Of course, you need to make sure they don't get too
      thick for the daggerboard cases.

      Jacques Mertens at www.bateau.com designs 'composite' boats with
      glass over plywood cores. The glass layers are not thick, but are an
      essential part of the construction.
