The one and only way to avoid all risk is to heat at least the under water parts
of the hull for at least 4 hours after curing in the mold.
If that is not possible, all heavy woven roving should be banned
in construction. Only chopped mats or chopped sprayed roving
and eventually 3-shaft or stitched light roving mats
of 300 or max 600 g/square meter should be used.
Most SA hulls I have inspected or repaired have had severely hydrolysis
delaminated heavy cheap 2 shaft woven roving in two or more laminate layers.
