Report 16th year spruce up in B & B Yachts Forum Posted January 2, 2021 9 hours ago, Hirilonde said: Graham does not call for glassing of the hull on the Spindrift and other designs, though some do choose to do so. Light weight is one of my top priorities, it is why I build BS 1088 Okoume boats. The only glass is the tape at joints. I did coat all surfaces with 3 coats of epoxy as specified. I did it as hot re-coat, no sanding in between, just before and after. The proof is in the pudding, as your boat held up very well. Weight is an issue for me too, so we will be going that route.
