    Hull hand laid up in GRP with temperature and humidity controlled conditions operating within an ISO 9002 quality assurance environment. Hull laminate manufactured from polyester resins with Isophalic gel coats, two applications of gel coat hand brushed and checked for thickness prior to first laminate. Initial layup also in isophalic resin with powered bound matt. Hull laminate is a combination of single skin Hull bottom with skin thickness increasing through high stress areas such as keel and fin and tuck.

    Hull stiffening is a complex mix of glasses in floors through the keel bay areas and moulded in tray mould/stiffening matrix in the forward and aft ends. Keel floors are moulded down into the fin keel sump. Top sides are stiffened with balsa cored stringers. All main bulkheads landed with tray mould/matrix structural supports and structurally bonded to the matrix slots and the matrix to the hull.

Load areas within the deck where fittings and fastenings are fixed, the balsa core is replaced with 12mm marine plywood. The inner and outer skins of the deck sandwich laid up with chopped Matt.
