Re: glass panel in bottom of punt
A number of people have said don't use laminated glass, and I'll say the same. Laminated glass is a couple of pieces of thin glass with plastic in the middle. Its advantage is that when it breaks, it breaks into small pieces, rather than shards. That adds nothing to this purpose.
When I replaced the old glass windows on Grantala... all but one were solid glass. One was laminated. The only one that broke as I removed them was the laminated one. I replaced them all with tempered glass, mostly in 8mm and 10mm thickness. I think I may have used 12mm for the main screens.
Carpe the living sh!t out of the Diem
I'd rather look back at my life and say "I can't believe I did that" instead of being there saying "I wish I'd done that"
