could you do a foam or honeycomb sole? (not sure what materials you have access to)
I will not look for "exotic" solutions, and there is also the issue of appearance (I am thinking of leaving the natural look of the plywood - painting later is always possible).
My current thought is to see if I have enough material left to make it from 2-3 pieces of the 4mm Okume + glassing the whole surface + 2-3 crosswise wood braces. I think this will bring it to a sufficient strength, considering that the volume under the sole is filled with foam and provide some support. Just need to check the weights in detail, but I think this will give a 1.5 kg weight reduction.

completed the seams, sanded them and rounded the chines, glassed the bottom.
~6 hours.
I was a bit concerned when I glassed the bottom that I did not apply enough epoxy. Although the cloth was fully transparent and adhered to the body it looked a bit "dry". After checking here and viewing some videos, and since the epoxy was still wet, I decided to apply another thin layer. I can still feel and see the weave.

If the resin is still not fully cured you can go ahead a lay a thin layer of fairing mix on it to fill the weave now. That is if you are sure you will not need to add more glass to where you are putting the fairing mix. And make sure the fairing mix is compatible with the resin you are using.

Yesterday flipped the boat and spot welded the deck. Today completed the seams and taped.
Total ~ 1 hour
