If you're looking at new boats, one of the things you'll have to consider is whether or not to buy a boat built with foam core construction. This is, of course, tough to do if you don't understand exactly what foam cored construction is. And unfortunately, there's plenty of misinformation (or information that's just plain dated) floating around out there. In this short video, we'll show you exactly how foam core construction works with a simple demonstration.


Interesting, wasn't it? And hopefully, this information will help you make a better educated decision as you choose a new boat. Then again, understanding a boat's design is at least as important as understanding its construction. Fortunately, we can help in that regard, too. Here are some topics we've covered lately, which you might find of interest:
