Re: S&G: Do you glass your wood coamings?

I'm with Et, I don't glass mine on built up plywood coamings, just adds weight. I only use these on SOF kayaks that are very light weight, so they don't get the abuse from lifting a sub 30 lb. kayak like a plywood kayak might. They are also pretty cheap and simple to replace if need be, unlike one on say a stripper.
