The question of thickness really depends on the shape. You see, fiberglass gets the majority of its strength from the shape. A semi-circle 1/16" thick could very well be stonger than a flat plane of fiberglass that is 1/4" thick.

:biggrin:

Is it good if you dont buy by the drum. But rather, the truckload of drums?! EEK :biggrin:

But yeah, every professional fiberglassing place (at least one of any size), buys it in bulk. My father's business buys it from Duraglass, but nonetheless it comes in 55 gal drums.
