    Can not believe it, had dramas getting the right weight cloth (plans were for 330gsm, had to get 450gsm, uni and bi)

    Cut out and stitch first hull together, thinking things are going well when flicking through the plans looking at laminating schedules (glassed inside and out then bulkheads installed) (stitch and glue design 24ft Cat) and. I notice 6mm ply specified for hull sides....... I'm sure I ordered 4mm.......... Oh poooooooop!

    Waiting on response from designer regarding changing laminations or of having to go up to the 450gsm cloth will already be sufficient
