Awk Footy

When I spotted some scrap correx (corrugated plastic sheet)  at work and knew exactly what I wanted to make  with it. The Awk Footy has a sleek 5 plank hull rather than our fleet of Papaya III's  boxy 3 plank.  The only problem was it was twice as thick as the correx on the AWK plans! Being lazy I didn't bother with the former either and just formed it best I could with my hands and covered the whole thing in PVC tape that I had left over from a RC glider kit.  So it's not quite to plan and the raised edges on  deck sort of just happened. I hope to use a carbon fiber mast on this maybe from an old kite.
