    1 layer of 225 mat, 50 layers of 450 mat, and a bit of reinforcement here and there.

    Above is a joke.

    Without any more info, it is impossible to tell how much materials you will need. Besides length of boat, there are several factors that determine the laminate schedule, for instance (but not limited to)

    -governmental regulations (CE)
    -speed
    -horsepower
    -mode of construction
    -number and type of reinforcements / bulkheads
    -etc.
