    Bobuk25, hmm I think a lot of your risk factors for fibreglass are pretty marginal. (batch age, traceability, manufacturer's variances) On the other hand I have seen steel boats sunk in their pens from a loose wire.
    Everything has risk.

    I remember something about a guy who cut up one or more smaller Russian titanium subs for the hulls and made a cat out of them. I think he decided the sub shaped hulls would be good enough.
