I did.

It was misleading and different from your followup post. You said, "solid fiberglass (which sinks in water) instead of wood (which floats in water)" and then followed up with the correct logic of buoyancy in a subsequent post.

Either way your questioning of the weight difference in your next sentence is valid since FRP (Fiberglass and Polyester resin only with no core) has a higher density than most plywoods.
