I say this with no pressure what so ever. I'll purchase all three manuals when you put them up for sale.
What little foam work I've done, I enjoy to ease of application. I'd still like to build a GF16 in foam and carbon fiber
so I could be a High Tech Redneck! :D :lol:

Hello,

Recently purchased the FS14LS plans, however, I intend to build them using the foam sandwich construction method. I also have the foam sandwich plans for the PH15.

I contacted Boat Builder Central to obtain foam plans for the FS14LS and Jeff rapidly responded that Jacques is working part time for the moment.

Im wondering if I can use the same lamination/material selection as the PH15 foam version and adapt it to the FS14LS?

PH15 calls for 1/2 in H80 foam for hull, deck, sole and stringers and h130 for the transom.

Would the same foam materials from the PH15 work for the FS14LS?

thank you

-Mark

I am not a fan of the H130 transom. Just on a gutcheck. Do not build the transom on assumptions. Most transoms are built with 24lb density or higher foams.

It is possible the designer has done calculations or increase the glass schedules to make h130 possible.

I would really enjoy watching you build it in a blogpost. I am mostly curious about the methods and as a foam boat builder; might offer help if needed.
