      Add CAD image as part of design iteration for "Frank's Boat".

If you think it might be a go with the Phlatprinter folks I can move it up. With the restriction on material thickness the design would have to be a multiple layer sandwich construction. With CAD that's not an issue, mostly thought process.

Pop-pop engines would probably melt eps foam coated with StyroSpray, but non popping boats propelled by tiny motors could be based on plans for the North River or string pull paddle wheelers. The next machine to come down the pike for the Phlatprinter company will be able to cut wood and thin nonferrous metals. Currently though there are 112 foam cutting machines that might produce parts for kits based on any plans for non-popping boats. These guys have sources for cheap motors, batteries and servos that could be modified for use in model boats.
