speaking of corematerials if you look in Current Desgins and necky kayaks they've been using a variety of core materials, The Dagger Meridian was made with the stuff all the way through it,necky has jumped ahead with glass/carbon replacing kevlar as THE light/strong layup. The trick is not to have too much core with too thin a skin or no core and rely on too much glass for a given amount of stiffness. That's why the ply/glass constructions are so neat,,,and why some plywood in some applications should have glass on both sides.
