I am in the process of building a 13ft. rowing skiff with a 3.5ft beam. I am using the Stitch-n-Glue construction technique and have just finished adding the fillets to the inside of the boat. I am planning on applying fiberglass cloth (6oz) to the inside and outside. I am concerned because the boat seems very flimsy. My question is, How much will the application of fiberglass strengthen the boat?
