Re: Balsa cored hulls



J24 core sample

I have always wondered why the thin skin is outside keeping the water off the core BUT that is how J-Boats does it and there is not a lot of margin for error or making to the old boat hall of fame



This is the outer skin of a J160 that fell over in a yard and landed on a bunch of jackstands which took a bunch of core samples

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
