    That is 40-50hrs for an ugly boat that floats. Maybe I am not doing too badly for a (hopefully) pretty boat that floats in 3-4x that much time......... I hope it floats :P

    I am not familiar with gypsum, is that just a plaster type stuff? Does it have some structural purpose or is it just to give it a solid feel and impact/crushing resistance?
