The main building material is called TeXtreme (160gr/m2) and only one layer of it. Both sides are covered by 25gr/m2 GFK, for a nice finish. That's it! Light weight and very robust.

Flying,

I have built my own riggers back in the late 80ís early 90ís and have been considering getting back into it, if you donít mind and have the time I have a ton of questions on your boat and the decisions you made. It came out quite well and seems to run nice, quick, and smooth.

@Kcal that's fine. Do you have pictures of your riggers dating back several decades ago? I am sure that if you fire them up with today's technology (LiPo, brushless motor, new ESC) that are pretty much okay. My rigger is quite classic too! :-)
