I like this wood concept.
Sometimes it takes some convincing, but
--Hawaiis--, convinced me that wood is Definitely the way to go for my
first hydrofoil ; aluminum is TO0oo Heavy, and it Hurts when it Hits
you, and like you say, composites Are messy
Ultimately, if your goal is to build a Cheap alternative to the expensive
ones now available, then Wood combined with just a touch of composites
will probably end up being the way to go.
Things made from Wood are Cheap to produce, lighter than aluminum,
and with less than 1/2 the mass of metal , (even when covered with fiberglass),
there's less odds that one of your customers will die , ((if that thing hits them in the head)).
Say what you want about the guy, but i SEE WHY he posted this below
and it's coming from a person that Already mass-produced a foil made
from metal ; Ya think he might have Learned something from his endeavours?
from Titanium Foil :

Metal kills people, no matter how light you can make it. No matter how fast it will go. Metal is out.
Plus the cost for titanium is horrendous. keep up the good work.
