Tollycraft we have tapers from approx 1.5" thick in its bow bottom section down to 3/4 " thick on sides toward transom.

One main reason there are sooooo many classic FRP boats still in good condition, besides owners' care, is the rugged way they were constructed. IMO... in 2016 there are several old 60 to 100 year old wood boats still on the water, but, during the next 100 + + years there will be Many Many old FRPs still on the water.
