Woo. You're gonna have to do some clever grafting there to regain the longitudinal strength, chubby.

That hull is surprisingly thin.

chubby - if the tubes are in reasonable nick - would you be more ecconomical to get a cheap hull with no/nackered tubes and combining the two boats to make one decent one?

Theres a chap who has posted on here by the name of "twister", apparantly he is doing or is planning to do the same thing. Send him a PM and he might be able to help.

The white foam is just ordinary polyethylene closed cell foam. Best of luck to you!

Hmmm quite a project - wouldn't it be easier to slice off the back and call it a 6 meter

Anyway keep us posted and good luck.
