    Default Fiberglass sources

    I'm finally running out of the 3.2 ounce plain weave FG cloth I've been using (for years) making strip kayaks. Contacted Thayercraft; they don't make that anymore.

    Curious recommendations and sources. Thanks.

    Finally settled on 4 ounce plain weave, 50" width, from Raka - best price, and... I needed epoxy, as well. Thanks, all.
