Wow! Nice work.
One thing the Moth guys do/did is lease/share molds for hulls and foils to help build the class. If there were enough people interested we might be able to start doing something similar?

That is good, or if VVS can start selling the foil as finished products.

Yes, a lot of job, spent a lot of time, I'm counting to make several sets. But this is still too early to say. need to complete first prototype. Test it and adjust.
Now I do mast and preparing for production board.
