Does GTMM use balsa or foam coring for the bottom?

Quick update on GTMM 39001. She is in final stages of rigging. Engines are going back in for final time this week. Decided to pull them back out and anodize all the hardware instead of powdercoat. Troy is working hard to get her done. making templates for each installation. This will make future rigggin time much less than #1. She is a couple weeks from her first sea trial. Gio and Scott are chomping at the bit to see how she run.

The is much interest from all over the world so time to put best foot forward on performance and fit and finish. She is truly a work of art.

Customer requested color. I love it too, but may be alittle warn. The light tan interior should be pretty cool though.

Well first Sea Trial was a success. She planed out in about 3 seconds with a very high "X". Accelerated to 90mph like a freight train.
Put some time on the power at a nice cruise then back for post shake down inspection. No leaks all systems go. Gonna try some differant props and drive height to get handling and speed where it needs to be. Should have some more info this week.
