No. There is 2 sheets of ply. The plan is 2 layers of 300 gsm csm behind the first layer of ply then 1 layer of csm between the second layer of ply and then 2 or 3 layers of csm over the top.

Tonight we got the underside of the deck flowcoated and ready to glass in. We used red flowcoat as we had it lying about and wanted to save the orange for the deck and bits that get seen. We glassed the whole under deck area of the hull up to add more sspport and strength. It also filled the millions of holes that were left when the stainless steel guard off.

Starting to take shape and looking good😃

Are you blocking up the hull or leaving her open?

We will be leaving the hull open. I was thinking of blocking it up but then when i wanted it i couldnt use it. Is there any way of covering it so it fills up slower than usual but still fills?

My sailing dinghy has transom flaps. Basically a piece of thin plastic (ice-cream tub lid) attached on a single side by a strip of metal screwed on. two holes in it to a "bridle" of shock cord which then connects to a hook inside the boat. To release you unhook (or if its full it will push the flap as the shock cord opens... You should be able to do something similar on the back flap with a hook in the space. But not sure you you'd do the front one (maybe a piece of plastic on the inside with shock cord coming through the hole and out to the bow?? and it may also just slow down the water coming out?!

Could you elephant's trunk the back hole?
How often would you want to use the front? Expanding bung on a string and just lean over to put it in place / remove...

Flipped the boat over to look at the bottom and found millions of repairs. We're going to take them out and redo them then glass the whole centre up with another two layers of glass before sanding it down then flowcoating it.
