    If you are designing the boat, you are the one to determine laminate schedule. Otherwise, you may have to hire someone to do the work for you based on a drawing.

    This is an engineers job - there is no 'magic formulae'

    It depends so much on the intended usage, weight, displacement and a dozen other things.
