I was giving this some thought today in work and came up with the idea of make a mold out of expanded foamin two parts hull and top then making a glassfiber shell using vacume baging then foam with wood reinforcements in possible weak points and then an outer layer of glass
repat for the other half and possibly using a jetski powerplant which I think would give this craft some seriouse bite
