styrofoam Cup for Sail

Post by pcar993 » Thu Nov 08, 2007 1:53 am

Has anyone here used a styrofoam cup for a sail? We are building a cat and if you cut the foam cup in half it appears to make a good sail. Any advice?

I have seen a fairly fast boat using ½ a Dixie cup… the styrofoam should be lighter? I’d weight them both and go with the one with lower weight…

it should make a nice sail though!
