Having worked a lot with ACX and boats, I strongly agree it needs
glassing of both sides.
A heavy boat is not all bad, because the increase in durability and
improvement to stability are good things.
One issue with a Teal, like all double ended boats, the 12 foot length
has the same carrying capacity as a 10 foot transom boat, or an 8 foot

- The only types of plywood that you know for sure have a good core so
they will not be a problem down the road are the marine plys and good
MDO. Anything else you will find WILL have voides of one kind or
another shortning the life of the boat.
