Thanks all for your replies. I think I'm going to attempt the inside in one piece instead after reading the responses.

Thanks again, greatly appreciated :D

Last question guys. Would 60" glass be wide enough to go around the entire hull of the trapper?

Thanks again

Matthew

I like to do the ends first. With a tumblehome, I then like to the split the cloth up the middle, tilt the boat so the tumblehome is vertical, then do the remaining hull 1/2 at a time.

There should be a Bill of Material in your plans packet. Did you get one?

I do the inside with one piece of glass , just take your time with it and it would not be a problem. Remember if you use to much pressure on the wet glass it will move.
To hold the glass as it is being wet in I like to use plastic clothes pins along the top edges and then remove them as the glass is stuck to the sides.
