Topic two of debate week is a fun one and may save you or cost you some money one day! OK, OK, we all have heard that if the bottom of a boat has been fiberglass it’s bad.. Or is it? After all, done properly, some fiberglass bottoms have lasted longer that restored ones? And on a lake like Lake Tahoe that can beat a bottom to a box of twiggs. A good glass bottom can add strength. So is it bad? And to add to the argument.. Lets say you find a cool ordinary 17 ft boat that’s been in storage for years.. And if you put a new bottom on it, you will triple the expense of a otherwise non collectable boat.. Does it make sense to throw a glass bottom on it to just use it until you can rebuild it? When you put a new bottom on it, your gonna do the frames anyway.. And in the mean time you have a fun affordable ride? Does it all debend on how the bottom was installed?
So let the debate happen..
