I've been building my board from foam (Guirit Corecell M80) and tbh it's really cheap for a structural foam in the UK (£40 for an 8x4 sheet, 1/4in thk)

The mixed resin alone came to nearly 1.5kg in yesterdays layup. Can you give us the full layup construction of the above, i'm intrigued how you keep it so light.
