I am trying to design my own A-Class in delft/free ship. I have been looking at pics of DNA's, LR4s, and the Predator design on the USACA website. I have uploaded some pics of my design, and would like if you guys could critique them, and give suggestions. I am looking for a boat that will compete at a regional, not national level, and I weigh around 210-220 lbs. I'm alos wondering about how much the materials will cost to build the 2 hulls. Using Carobn/Kevlar/ Foam I've come up with around $4000 so far.Thanks

It would be good to talk to someone like Peter Cogan, although designers may not want to give away too many pearls. If you are good with glass I have another option. My 2007 Flyer II (German Built) was damaged while on the trailer by a car crossing the center line. Damage to one hull, but if you are good with you hands you could bring it back to good a lot easier than building from scratch. Just north of Portland, Oregon.

Carbon, foam and epoxy for one hull of mine is about $1,000.00

Yeah, I was including 2 hulls + the frame templates, and estimating other materials. Thanks
