Thanks for the opinions guys.

I've got a couple of months of building bulkheads and bits before I move house and can start on the main hulls proper so will give me chance to have a bit of an experiment with materials and techniques before have to get cloth and foam in large quantities.

I'm mostly going to be racing in and out of the harbour with maybe 5 or 6 coastal races a year, plus a bit of cruising when time permits.

In a few years time there may be some mileage in organising an unofficial world champs somewhere
