    That works, its what I used to do with stitch and glue ply 12s in the 70s. I dropped the idea from the moths to save weight. I did not do it with Hollow Log as I had skinned the inside with carbon first and thought that would do the job. It was strong enough but the BHs showed on the outside after a while. Of the 9 cherubs i Built and The first 12 Tejin Sailcloth which had ply topsides we never encountered this problem although we were using 4.5mm plywood (although it was sold as 4mm) but I have seen s/tape boats with hardspots (mainly early Tornados) when i spoke to the LKate Chris Tim
