Ya, balsa is too soft and I would have to glass it with a couple layers of weave, same with styrofoam, and also glassing compound curves is a pain. I have a wide array of carving dremel bits, and I'm on my way to have this shell weighing well under 8 oz.Balsa would be a better choice or even insulation foam....that pine will be mighty heavy
Ty...I'm planning on a stock 26, which I don't have yet. So if something a little bigger, but with the same footprint catches my eye, I might consider it. I have a few months before this thing hits the water, anyway.Thats a good looking boat....going stock 26cc or something bigger
Happy new year to you too, Robert. Finally got the cat painted. Came back from the shop today. I went with a metallic flake gray, as I intent to do it up in a Toronto Raptors colour scheme (current colours).Hello Vince and Happy New Year....how is the Cat coming along..
Thank you Robert...ya, according to our local groundhog we should be getting an early spring, so this baby will be hitting the water pretty soon. Still waiting on drive shaft, prop and decals before I can complete it.Good heavens....that turned out beautiful....i cant wait for the warm weather to see it run.
Well done Vince...
