I was never argueing it was stronger.
I know i probably come across as someone who is just argueing until he gets the answer he wants,
but ive been see sawing back and forth on this one between posts.
The phrase "the fibers may shear their physical connection to the binding" is quite alarming.

But if you look at the pics you can see ive only done the inside of the hull so far. If that was it, i think you'd be right. It might be alright, but you dont want to worry about it dropping of a wave or bumping on a beach/trailor.

Im gonna wait for the approriate material arrives to do the outside.
I guess I just dont see the the csm epoxy coming apart, especially as the edges and the right angle to the bulkhead are taped with the correct material. And what damage might i do ripping it all out?

With Biaxial Tape 150 mm 430gsm on the outside of the hull it will be far stronger than the surounding wood.

Thanks for all the posts. Although im being stubborn and arguementative i do appreciate them.
