I remind everyone that there is a lightweight boat building competition for this year. It's not cutthroat, just something for us to have fun with. I know somebody who is building a balsa boat. Hopefully that boat is scheduled to be there. I am building a 12 footer, totally conventional wood composite strip built, to enter so I should be easy to beat. I'm doing this so we'll all know how light such a boat can be with completely conventional methods.
This is just a fun gathering so we can all get together, look at boats, see what the other builder's are doing, and hopefully try out a few of the designs.
Hope to see ya'll there!
