Kevlar isn't lighter, it's stronger

Kevlar is lighter than fibre glass. You also need less Kavlar than fibre glass.

Kevlar is a high strength, high stiffness, light weight Aramid fiber material. Kevlar can offer both a significant weight savings and improved stiffness in comparison with fiberglass. It addition, it offers superior abrasion and impact resistance.

So:

1. Approximately how much more expensive is it to build a 21 out of aramat rather than glass?

and

B) What type of resin do you use?
