  tuffweave & gelcoat

g2d,
I have seen some Wenonah comp cruisers built in glass without a gelcoat and they are spooky looking. The thin areas of the hull are transparent and the core areas mostly opaque. The Kevlar reinforcement patches along the keel line and at the stems are very visible, making the hull look like its already been repaired.
The 16' Fisherman that Yetipope is working on is old enough it might not be Tuffweave, but regular fiberglass.
