  Flex is sometimes good
  Posted by: kayamedic on Jun-11-13 11:27 AM (EST)

but in a glass boat I would check just how flexy it may be some fibers are broken and need reinforcing. Are there soft spots?

Some boats are designed to be flexible to ride over waves such as Pakcanoes that are an adaptation of SOF craft.

Glass boats should be fairly stiff. It also may be that you don't have enough thwarts to prevent the hull from flexing.
