Anyway just an idear, thought that since cardboard was such a strong shape I'd throw it out there. Folks seem to go to no end of trouble to get things light and strong around here so I'm curious why the classic cardboard cross section seems to be absent from boat design ?
do that out of carbon fiber and you'd likely have an extremely tough something
I saw a structure similar to that in a shower stall I cut apart. At first I laughed at the idea, but the more I think about it....I wonder where I can find the rippled paper.
