Next term at the NZTBS  I’ll be fibreglassing the outside and making the centreboard and case, plus flippng over the hull.

I was almost gonna keep planking and make the hull a bit thicker, but 2 layers of 3mm wood and a 420gsm fibreglass outer is enough (it needs a hard outer surface regardless, as the cedar is incredibly soft).
