Yes and No.
You start with one layer of tape and later you will add the overlaps of the wide fabric. This gives you 3 layers outside.
With the inside layers, this creates a strong and stiff beam.

The scantlings are in the new notes that I rewrote last month. The previous scantlings were identical but the text was not clear.

Glassed the transom seams and chines with the help of some buddies. Started to get later and my wife called me in for dinner so I didn’t get to knock out the keel; probably will do that today. I’ll clean up any high spots and fill any bubbles, get the seams sanded up this weekend and get the big fabric laid out and cut to fit.

Sanded and cleaned up the areas on the keel and laid down the glass for that. Got where I wanted to be before the weekend 🤘🏼!

Good looking work. There seems to be a bunch of OB15s being built right now. It is easy to see why, they are nice looking hulls.
