thank you escipion...
the material here known as styroflex, yes based on PVC.. is inner core like sponge, and two sides laminated with smooth plastic sheets.. can buy in various density, and high density used to make kitchen cabinets.. the low density is so great that can work so easily, can sand, shape.. bend.. so easily.. and when formed, gives us a great strong shell.. and for additional strength, we can mix french chalk powder to water based wall emulsion paint, then pour inside, and spread all around.. when dries it turns in to a shell like rock.. just using NC PS Grey, in diluted manner to seal all gaps.. pour inside and allow to run all around.. blow it well.. then easy.. we can use industrial super glue for making shells..

Thank you very much Krishna. I'm trying not to use too much wood on my boats so your explanation gives me some good ideas for the next one. I know the materials (here in Mexico have another name), but never saw a boat built with them, congratulations.

She's a gorgeous little boat Krishna. Are you going to put a net on her and a few salty old fishermen to crew her?!!

You have been so industrious. I did wonder the other day if it was your cooler season which would make doing stuff easier.

welcome Escipion.. i also have ample supply of balsa and other soft wood around me.. but nowadays i never use it on my boats, but only for aero modeling to reduce weight.. while working with foam board, we need only very few finishing materials.. easy to work with.. lasts for a life time.. never attacked by borers and termites.. no dust issues.. easy to clean.. easy to rework.. and very inexpensive.. can make any shape.. and any size.. and so weightless.. have some great, enjoyable builds...

Ballast.. sure.. i am in work to detail her.. collected some dried seeds from fan tree here, serves as floats, with orange paint, net, and some crews.. already fixed one crew inside the cabin.. need two more.. amd making new with same hull.. and lined up in my dock yard.. along with my lobster boats.. still working on lots.. its rain here.. great time for modeling.. yes, loves to make models when raining.. soo nice.. some hot coffee.. and cutlets.. then on.. and on.. and on.. have great modeling..

Hello Krishna!!!
You are right about that material, thatīs why I'm trying to use it the more I can.
Here in Mexico people use to throw away furniture, boxes and a lot of things of wood, I utilize that kind of wood to do my boats, trying not to spend much money with them, then I began to make the boats with styrene and PVC, but the first one gave a lot of problems because I didn't know the working characteristics of the material, so decided to make something no so difficult, like the bobby's police launch I'm making.
I try not to utilize balsa in the boats, it is too soft and need a lot of care when you're working with, I use it with my airplanes, but by now I'm in stand by with that hobby

Best regards
