Hull construction begins with a fully cured gel coat of 15 mil thickness. Hand layup method of construction guarantees the proper fiberglass to resin ration, assuring consistent laminate strength throughout. The hull is made up of several 1 1/2 random strand mat and 24 oz woven roving fiberglass. Generous overlap of the layers in the keel and chines increase hull strength, impact resistance and overall integrity. The stringer system is 100percent fiberglass re-enforced with aluminum in the engine room. The stringer system is a one piece grid network bonded to the solid fiberglass hull bottom. The hull sides have balsa core above the waterline, providing stiffness resulting in a structure that is incredibly strong with minimum weight.
