The jury's still out on glassing carvel planked boats as far as I'm concerned. Oh Joy was C-Flexed in '96 and has NO rot whatsoever in the hull from it. I think properly applied C-Flex is the only way to glass a planked hull, if it's done right. The only rot I have is two small sections of ribs from a freshwater incursion aft, which are simple fixes. No rot to any planking or anything else, anywhere on the boat.
