Sabalo 12

Matt, I have been looking at the sabalo 12 since you came out with the plans. Do you think it would be ok to use 4oz glass instead of 6oz? Fixing to order glass for a current project, might as well order glass for a future project too.

Yes.

Download the BOM from the product details and it shows using 4-ounce as an option.

Got the plans today! Fiberglass will be here Thursday or Friday. I have now kicked into high gear on the current build to get it finished. I figure sometime next week it will hit the water. After that the Jem paddle board gets a fresh coat of paint and varnish. There is a boat builder gathering here in Texas next month and I want it to look spiffy. And then we will start this build. Thinking of doing some video on this one.

Neon... you are full of innovation.. :) I have been wondering when someone will build one of the sit-on-tops with 1'' foam for the inner structure to cut down the weight...

I don't think I am going to do any experimental stuff on this build. I have a few ideas on storage and rigging that might be kind of cool. I want to get this thing built pretty quick. I feel comfortable that the foam would work. I just think I need to build this boat the conventional way and enjoy the build. This last project has really worn me out bad. But you never know :lol:
