QuoteGilles, owner of Aquamarina, has the idea of building a Cherub over an RS700 hull

I could be the way to go if you intend on just making the one hull.
Quote from: phil_kirk on May 16, 2008, 01:16:29 PMI have also wondered if it is possible to make a cherub using single curvature pannels, single chine hull form and hence replicating the early home building revolution that saw the succes of the Mirror and Enterprise. if the hull pannels could be cut out of foam (perhaps with one layer of reinforcement on the inside) and stuck together in some simple jigs you could avoid using complex jigs or a female mould. The P7 appears to be a refined single chine hull form so the concept could produce a quick boat.
