Bon Voyage-FG Bill of Materials

HULL CONSTRUCTION MATERIALS: The following is an estimate of the fiberglass materials required to build the basic fiberglass hull. The listing is to serve as a general guide only and should not be used to purchase materials until various options and alternatives have been checked to the plans and to the work, whenever possible. The hull construction materials are based on surface area square footage, plus additional laminate build-ups and internal structural members, and may vary somewhat depending on the materials chosen and how they are used. The figures include an overage factor, however it is probable that more materials may be required due to waste, defects, sizes, and types of materials available, etc. The listings do not include materials for the decks and cabin superstructure due to possible variations on the part of the builder and the fact that scrap materials from the hull should be used before purchasing additional materials. In all cases, check the plans and instructions for options as well as the material listing given for the PLYWOOD VERSION.
