Fiberglass and wood

Most people don’t know that most small wooden boats are actually fiberglass boats with a wood core. Here’s a good photo showing the sit-on-top kayak’s hull with the fiberglass cloth draped accross the inside and wetted out with epoxy. Even though the inside of the hill looks like plain wood, it actually has the white cloth which turns transparent when epoxy is applied. The cloth will also be applied to the outside of the hull and the boat will be quite strong.
