I’ve been thinking on how to strengthen the final (ocean going) hull. At first I was thinking about making the hull out of carbon fibre, but its around £40 per square metre in cloth form.
I decided to go with Kevlar fibre cloth (I’d never heard of it before), strength wise it’s in between fiberglass and carbon but costs only £20 per square metre.
When I’m home at the weekend I’ll look into finding a decent supplier of Balsa Wood and then we can get the first hull started.
I`m sat here reading my kindle and decided to check my email (thanks Amazon for the free 3G!) and found that i`ve yet again had no reply to the order i placed for the Basla Wood. it`s now been 5 days so i`ve decided to cancel the order.
Does anyone have any recommendations for good UK supplies?

I’ve finally managed to find the time to get the site up and running (even if we still have a awful logo!). In the next couple of days I’ll install the forums ready for discussions (I hope) on all things Auton.
If you’d like to find out what the Auton Sail Boat is all about then have a read of the About page.
