    I expect the designer would call for a fillet and glass tape on the inside of the joints but no need to fully glass; you'd just be adding weight and hassle.

    I did order in some 1088 through my local timber merchant when was about to start my little boat. It was about 15 a sheet cheaper but not a patch on the Robbins Elite. I rejected it.
