I used 6oz cloth. Haven't launched yet so I can't speak to ultimate durability but It didn't take a ton of epoxy to fill the weave. You're doing a great job on your boat! Tuffy is a cool design.
I would just be interested in a pattern that you could clamp to the end of each sheet. Then rout it with a pattern bit. Seems like it would be much easier than a scarf joint (if you have a pattern). Maybe there's a way to print the pattern and paste it to a sheet of plywood. It would be fiddly to ma...

I was going to say plane it until I saw you said it was only 1/8" thick. Thickened epoxy would work really well on that roughness. Gel magic is pretty expensive though. Have you tried thickening regular epoxy? Your boat looks great so far by the way.

Consider building a place to store it? I think I'm on the other end of the spectrum. I enjoy being on the water more than I enjoy building. Hence my choice of a simpler design. All that to say, I think I get why you would make that decision.
Thanks, Mike! Here it is with some relief cuts in the corners. The bottom is flat which I think will be appropriate for this design. I also added a coat of epoxy. The coamings, windshield, and a couple of other details will be the same wood. Should make for a really nice contrast to painted topsides...
