    would like to have a thumb nail and some dimensions Loa ,Beam ,depth,
    I would like to do a basic estimation for the hull and Deck .
    Gary ( Duluth Boat ) mentions several options as to build I will do the 3 basics,
    Cold mold . foam core , balsa core .... but for the money cold mold would be
    cost effective for the size I don't really expect the power to be a significant difference in either of the build formats used. We are talking approx. 30' ?

    Correct me if I am wrong,, If we use cold mold $$$ saved will be picked up in power. Lesser power $$$ will be picked up by foam or balsa core evening the ratios. is this 6 of one 1/2 dozen of the other?
