    I know I asked this question already, and thanks again to those who responded with links; I was hoping to window shop a bit more before making such a huge purchase.

    I found a distributor for epoxy that I'm satisfied with cost and quality wise, but the foam core and cloth is still up for grabs.... I'm building a 31' trimaran.

    Tell 'em Knottybuoyz sent you. I'm sure if they don't laugh too hard they'll work with you on your project.

    Rapscallion,

    It's probably Jacques Mertens' LB 26 that is responsible for the sold out situation in respect of glass cloth and foam. It's a very popular design. Even I have a set of plans for it, but luckily I'm in the UK.:D
