If the fiberglass is that thin, it won't support its own weight... How big are these holes??? I seriously doubt the fiberglass is less than an 1/8" thick at a minimum.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
