These are not a tank. They were moderately heavily built charter boats. The glass was pretty thick, but crudely laid up. They were built to be cheap to buy, docile to sail, and hold up while in livery and that not all that much more. Their Aechille's heel is that there was a fair amount of steel used for structure in these boats and have seen discussions of disecting these boats to get the rusting pile of 'formerly steel' out.
