Yeah Giu, you're right about the hi-tech composites being pricier, as well as stronger than solid glass. They're used extensively at my marina - New England Boatworks, builders of some of the fastest sailboats in the world, including several America's Cup yachts.

I was referring to the cheaper, cored FRP stuff - used on Beneteaus, Hunters & Catalinas - lighter and in actuality not as strong as solid glass. I remember you stating how expensive your composite hull was - that's state-of-the-art and far from economizing.
