whitewater boats.

There are a variety of glass layups. Not all are the same. There is E glass, chopper mat, and S glass in various weights.

Yes FG is more abrasion resistant than Kevlar.

Which fiberglass solo boat are you considering? Weight can be an issue on portages in the Adirondacks. Its much more fun portaging a kevlar boat over three miles than a glass one.

As Jackl said,, get out of the boat in the water. Don't run it up on shore.Oh well you are solo, you will learn quick enough the instability with bridging a boat.

Debark properly and scuffs should not even be in your head.
