    It would be helpful if there was more information in using heavier strips for larger (20’+) boat strip building.

    Well written orientation.

    Remarkably easy read for a subject I have always regarded as very complex. The lofting explanation was an epiphany for me. Would have also appreciated some detail on trimming the glass and whether the top of the top strip remains un-glassed.
