Re: Classic 21 Express "Sweet Esmaralda"

If you were happy with the 10hp on that hull, the 20 on C21 will do just fine.

Thanks Jacques and Matt for both your explanation regarding the efficiency of the C21 hull for my plans of use. I appreciate both your effo...

Re: Classic 21 Express "Sweet Esmaralda"

Thanks Marc and Hank for being sharp,

I will choose between Balsa en Birch ply.

Are there significant differences between these two? Wich one will be the best for my 1:5 model?
I tend to go with the Birch plywood. I think it will bend more the same as Marine ply then Balsa?
