First time post here on the forum. Bought the plans last week and plan on getting one built this summer. I have built 8 kayak style boats and wanted a new challenge. Thanks ahead of time for the help!
Has anyone used the 4-6" fiberglass tape for the rail? I have made a few boats and overlap 2 layers over all seams and corners. The only issue is it is thicker than the 6 oz glass recommended for the board...I would think that once a few coats of resin are applied it may even out, but was just curious.

I did not use any tape for the rail, just overlaped them. Used a heavier cloth that 6 oz and overall that required a couple of epoxy coats after wetting in the glass. Don't believe that the tape would add anything to the board, may take some more time to do it with the tape in fact.
Let us know which way you go!
P.S. Photo's get you extra timeless surf point too!!!
