Glassing is too weak

Will pressure dent too easily


(2 X full layers of 4 oz. glass on deck & 1 X full layer of 4 oz. glass on bottom.)

Sorry Squidly, I'm with gabsouy, 3 x 4 has been considered the norm for some time. That’s not an endorsement.

What most people don't get is it's more about the foam density.
