: 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?

The techniques in the "Kevlar Canoe" book can be used with any reinforcing fabric.
