"A big DON"T.  It's OK to put  a layer of Light glass cloth on the outside. But don't use polyester resin in the cloth.  Use only a good quality thin Epoxy.  If you do use polyester you will live to regret it."

"expensive, I would recommend to talk to vonderlinden and I would also suggest contacting Hanneke about it (although they might be reluctant of using something so modern)"

"I would not recommend Meranti, it is very brittle @Philip, pls see link above, otherwise try to search for Coosa composites (http://www.coosacomposites.com) , BTW Boatsmith was using the stuff also for his Ariki build"

"Marine ply is generally built to a higher grade, thus will last longer, all things being equal. Look for more plies per dimension: that will be the better sheet, all things being equal again. They all need to be encapsulated with epoxy/glass, no…"
