I've lifted the first set of test float hull sides out of the mold and they look pretty good. I might not be making a new female molds and just work with these. Main hull halve plugs are next to be constructed.

What is the lay up, they look too thin and flexible. Remember carbon is 225% stiffer for the same weight.

Hi Jim, these were not final hull molds I just wanted to have a look at the surface quality from the mold and shape.

I've managed to get a bit done on this project lately. Looking at the 1/4 scale beams as drawn in the plan I decided to loft them out at full scale to confirm their fairness. They were not in total agreement with a fair curve in places so it shows the benefit of drawing things on paper if possible.

I've noticed that someone put a note on my User CP asking where I obtained plans for this design. They are available from Cornwall Model Boats and they ship internationally.

I don't think it would gain much traction even 2 metre boats are pretty rare the most popular RC multihull class is the smaller Mini 40 multihull. Lugging a 3 metre model multihull around would be quite a job due to the bulk particularly if it was a square trimaran.
