|bobperry||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.|

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......

|mitiempo||Interesting Bob. What is your second choice?|
|05-31-2011 05:20 PM|
I'd go grp with a foam core. No question.

You are the client. You have no budget restraints, within reason. What is your choice of hull material ? Don't go all exotic on me.
Now Fuzzballl is the client and fuzzball has no budget restraints. I really do like the idea of aluminium but ending up with a hull that looks as pretty as NightRunner would probably sway me to cold moulded.

I should correct myself. NIGHT RUNNER is only 32 years old.
But it has been around Cape Horn and it has plenty of miles on it.
