Hull & Deck
The hull is single-skinned balsa sandwich construction with reinforcement
A built-in structural inner moulding is bonded and laminated to the hull at intervals. Its structural role is important as it takes and absorbs the stresses at pressure points (keel, rudder, etc.) and spreads any loads guaranteeing reduced strain on the hull.
The inner moulding with its perfect
surface gives extra stowage space under the sole and makes cleaning easier.
A skeg is moulded into the hull to protect the propeller shaft.
Prevention against osmosis by use of vinylester resin.
The gel coat is white.
The deck is sandwich construction (glass fibre and balsa) for an optimal strength/weight ratio as well as excellent sound and thermal insulation.
A ?diamond point? non-slip surface increases safety over all areas of movement on deck.
There are solid reinforcement points under the deck fittings (winches, tracks, chain plates, cleats).
A built-in inner deck moulding completes the deck structure and helps to perfect its finish.
A straight deck line with an aluminium
toerail forms the hull/ deck joint. This join ensures a watertight assembly and improves safety when moving around on deck. The transom/ hull joint is secured with a rubber rubbing strake.
To improve durability the keel is given an anticorrosion treatment using epoxy based coatings and paint.
