Leaving carbon aside, cored bulkheads and furniture are common on production catamarans. Cored panels are really not that expensive - finished 4'x8' sheets run about $200-250 (depending on core type and finish) retail in single sheets. I'm sure the price drops significantly for wholesale larger orders.

Marine grade plywood goes out the door a little over $50.00 a sheet so a fair difference plus if the finish is a real high end veneer the costs of cored panels will be much more.

Perhaps they spec'd Corecell at the beginning, which made it onto their promo sheets, then changed their mind to another structural foam.

Edit: I just went to Gurit's (maker of corecell) website and see that they make this in a wide range of colors that denote density and application. You can get mauve and lilac also, if you like: http://www.gurit.com/files/documents...hurev10pdf.pdf

Right you are. Also could be variations in color between batches.

Wow, last time I bought it (a long time ago), I paid much more than that.

I can't even find marine grade plywood, at least not the Fl Panhandle, been thinking about using exterior plywood

It's only a "bashing" thread if you think these design and building techniques are bad. I don't. I think it's great that Hinckley is doing a good, smart thing here. Their market no longer seems to want what they did 30 years ago.

The only people who want what was available 30 years ago have salt water running through their veins. My last blood test revealed my sodium was a bit high.

On one post you equate the Hinckley fit and finish to your 25+ year old Hunter and the next post is no one wants what they built 25+ years ago.
