for those of you still in home build mode,
you may like this blog with a 'how to" lay up your own moth foils.
http://www.mothflyers.co.uk/blog/lets-build-some-foils/

Bille was the first to point out fastacraft, so i'm sure this will be more vindication, even though he's willing to settle for wood.
but if you read thru, the author did fabriccate his first batch from wood and carbon.
....always room for another twist

one interesting point in the next post
http://www.teknologika.com/mothblog/the ... ydrofoils/

apparantly moth foils have a plan shape that's only slightly larger that most kite foils that people have been talking about.

maybe the used market for moth's is the place to get high end carbon do-dads.
especially since these guys are always moving on to the next go-fast mod to their boats.

That's a GREAT idea ; the center could always be trimmed to reduce the aria, then
spliced back together, even the sweep-angle could be changed !!

Could you please fix this link ?
