It's not my intention to recommend this for everyone. Just wanted to offer info from someone that's been through it in case someone wants to consider it.
I do think it's worth considering - no matter what the eventual decision is.

It took me lots of study and consideration before I decided this was the best approach for my particular situation. Yes, confidence in the engineering and the trade skills of the FRP crew are crucial.

It was scary to see the first access panel cut. OTOH, the new tanks, their mounts, and the hull are now all better than when she was delivered from the factory.
