    Gonzo, if you ask me I will answer that this has nothing to do with the thickness and weight of the fibers but of course that's what we need to do. It is mandatory to do so, and you can not imagine (or you do?) the very different results you get, that have little to do with the total thickness of the laminate..

    That's an interesting statement, that it is mandatory to measure every fiber. LOL

    I have no talent other than being able to scan and post, which I am usually too lazy to do. The chart/table is from "Fiberglass Boatbuilding For Amateurs" by Ken Hankinson, available from Glen-L.
