    Hello, I'm building a composite drift boat using infusion method and looming for layup advice . I have the tool and parts made just can't nail down the cloth and core materials to use. The boat is a skiff style with a bench for the orrsman and stern and bow pedestal seat. Any suggestions would be helpful

    How do you plan to use it?

    The build method can be different depending on use.
