    What kind of gelcoat do you use? Cuting down 1/2 of the weight sounds interesting. When i tried saving weight on the gelcoat it didnt cured.
    Hawaiian canoes are really light but also weak. The coremat canoes are really soft. The foamcore ones are much better in stiffness.
    I can make a hand lay up canoe 2 kg lighter than with infusion.
