  All Kevlar is not necessarily a bad

layup, but CC/KK or SS/KK is better, stiffer, more able to take a shot and retain form so you can finish a trip.

Back in the 80s, SS/KK was established as the best for taking abuse and holding together. The measured advantage was clear in all ways.

CC/KK or SC/KK are rational alternatives. Saves a bit of weight, retains stiffness.

Kevlar is not an all-purpose boat cloth. But any makers who want to pretend that it is, go ahead. Replacing outer layers with S-glass adds very little weight, but considerable stiffness and resistance to frictional wear.
