I think I have seen the wood one around a bit. Possibly in the woody section at opening day this year. Pretty boat.

Not that I have had one, but a foam core hull would be on my top of th elist, if nothing else, altho I could be wrong, but from an insulation stand point, light wt, and there should be no issues with rot like wood. But how I would love to have my little Glen-L 8-ball I built in r high at times......one of these days may I will build another, now there is a S&G version with a dagger board which I would have preferred over the CB version I had..........I digress......

My second choice would be wood veneers over a foam core. That is a great way to build a strong and light boat if you have the labor skill to do the wood part. JAKATAN, my 41' schooner, was built that way and its a crackerjack boat in everey way.

That's how Rage is built, isn't it? She has proven pretty durable - and fast!
