    I did a quick search to see if this has been mentioned before, but apparently not.

    After a lot of discussion on Foam Core Boat building, I was pleasantly surprised to find these pages in the Bateau plan site

    http://www.bateau2.com/howto/foam1.php

    very neat, concise and well illustrated instructions on foam core hull construction.

    Might be of use to someone out there - I enjoyed it a lot.

    Used a very similar method to build a 24.5' round the cans racer myself a few years back.
