    What is wrong with the layup given to you on Multihull forums by Steve Turner? Sounds on the money to me. If not consult the designer or get a layup from your materials supplier. At some point you are going to have to make a decision and start building. My only advice at this point would be use a top quality gelcoat and use a vinyl ester tie coat behind or all ve layup.
    Cheers,

    Thanks!

    But what I meant was a link to the mentioned post with the layup given to you by Steve Turner.

    Regards,

    in full Steve Turner said,

    "Hulls:
    Gelcoat, 200 gram powder bound CSM skin(tie coat),300/150 gram biaxial combination mat,Lantor Coremat XM 4mm, 300/150 gram biaxial combination mat. Extra layers along keel, stem, stern etc.
    Decks:
    Same layup but substitute 10mm PVC foam for coremat eg Airex C70.
    Beams:
    Make standard wooden beams, or use aluminum alloy tubes, 4" (100mm) OD x 10 gauge wall (3.3mm)
    Are you planning to build a female mould, or make flat panels?
    If flat panels, you will need to join them before laminating the inner skin.
    Are you an experienced laminator? If not, hire one and labour for them!

    Steve"

    Here’s a reply from Richard Woods on the method I received via email,

    I think this backs up what most of the others on the forums have been saying all along. It can be done but not a good idea.
