TS240/T250s are about 95% balsa cored in both hull and deck, which is why they are so light and nippy! The balsa starts about 50mm away from the hull/deck join, has ply inserts in areas of stress and consists of a 3mm outer skin, 10mm end grain balsa core and 1.5mm inner skin. In places, the interior lining mouldings are stuck to the inner skin with epoxy, so it forms one lump at these points.

All is good as long as the balsa stays dry but just look out if it gets wet!

Cheers,

Alan.
