Add another 13 yards if you want a second layer of cloth covering the hull
or 13 yards of Dynel which would be a better outside layer.

These are the same products we use in the Devlin Boat shop, and I added the glassing schedule (shown below) I would use if I were to build one. I hope this makes this part of your supplies purchase easier. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions 360-790-0577
Suggested Glassing Schedule
All interior joints get a glass schedule of one layer 4 Biax (12oz.) two layers 6 Biax (12oz) and two layers 8 cloth (6oz) The entire hull, decks and cockpit sole get a layer of 6oz cloth with a 4 strip also added to all exterior joints.
I prefer to cut the 4 and 8 glass strips off of the 50 roll instead of using the pre-cut rolls. To cut the strips use a piece of Ό scrap plywood the desired width (4 and 8), lay it at the edge off the roll and cut with a razor blade. Use some clean plywood as your cutting surface. The easiest way to sheathe the hull is to glass from sheer to shear or centerline to sheer 50 at a time.
|Hull Bottom and Sides
|| (2) 5 x 20 ½ plywood
-OR-(2) 4 x 20 ½ plywood for two hull bottom each with leftover plywood used for side decks,
and (1) 4 x 20 ½ plywood for both hull sides*
Note : if 4 wide stock is used, you can reduce total plywood necessary by
(1) ½ sheet used for side decks, see asterisked item below.
|| 4 x 8 Ύ plywood used for bulkheads in the following combinations
#7 and #2 bulkheads using one sheet
#4 and #1 bulkheads using one sheet
#5 and #8 bulkheads using one sheet
#3 and #8 bulkheads using one sheet
(you need two #8s)
Rear foam compartment #6, (2) total, use ½ scrap from hull panels.
Scribe into position as shown on plans.
