I agree! Six ounce is not my favorite glass but you did great with it.

I really enjoy it!! But of course if I build a OD18 or panga down the road it will probably be out of plywood.

6 oz glass is a PITA to work with but it laid out well.

FishGitR, How many coats is this and how much AwlGrip did you use to get the hull to this point? Beautiful work and I really like that color!! Jeff
