Default RE: 72

I use chopstrand for the whole boat, it's 225gm, i really don't like plain weave or multidirectional as i fing it is very hard to keep the airbubbles out, chopstrand i have found bends really easily and is alot easier to get the airbubbles out.
Probably seems glossy because i had to rewet the last layer to ensure there is adhesion. I guess i am confortable doing it this was after 15-20 molds i have done,i probably really have gone Vacu-bagging it all as i have a pump but it really doesn't seem worth it with all the extra work to get the mold stronger.
Thanks for the coments, and can understand why it would be lighter.
