Small Boat Design

Discussions around designing small boats including kayaks and canoes.

Fiberglass Canoe

I just finished with a cedar strip canoe and want to build an all fiberglass canoe. I've read Building your Kevlar Canoe by Moran. Does anyone know if you can use his method of building with a layer of Kevlar and and layer of Fiberglass with two layers of fiberglass? I can't imagine it would add too much weight. Or would you need more than two layers to make the boat as strong as Moran's method?
The boat I plan on building in a early 1900s sailing canoe with some modifications?

Thank you.
