    Hi Everyone,

    I have a small shop space here in Philadelphia, about 16' long by as much wide, though with a pillar in the middle. In years past I have built a cedar strip sailboat and a chesapeake light craft rowing shell.

    Looking to build something possibly in foam core, perhaps a high tech racing sailboat like the RS or the swift solo (trapeze would be cool.) Would like to get the experience working with foam core. Also would consider something row or paddle-able, like a kayak or sit-on-top.

    Haven't found many(any) designs in foam core at this size. Dreaming of one day building a trimaran, or designing something with this material.
