Hull / deck – made from GRP with load bearing areas and impact areas strengthen with CSM and roving. Flat areas are stiffened with coremat in a sandwich lay-up with the bow u-bolt mounting area further reinforced with GRP backing plate. Transom is constructed by a sandwich of marine ply sealed under GRP. Consult us for available color choices.

Partitions can be installed to customer choice to segregate hatch areas.
Buoyancy – approx 450 - 480 liters approved polyurethane foam poured into PE bags which allows water to flow past the foam to the drain plugs and further prevents foam absorbing water – this allows for a maximum total weight of boat, motors and crew/kit /fuel of 800 kgs (60% offshore regulations) – assuming hull 240kgs with fittings + motors 120 kgs + fuel 50 kgs +3 crew (@ 75 kgs each) 225kgs this leaves 165 kgs for kit and catch. Additionally as discussed in Safety page, by pouring foam into Polyethylene bags this allows water flow past the bags and prevents the absorption of water. This has obvious safety and longevity features. (SEE Safety Page)
Floor – Wood free floor made from composite sandwich layering with additional GRP load bearing backbone structure as an integral component. This ensures wood rot / delaminating will not occur and provides a load and stress transferring structure which adds structural strength to the craft.
Consol with windscreen and shelf - suits battery/electronic installations and some tackle housing plus personal items eg keys, phones, firearms etc. It houses all controls and cables which are enclosed within the consol and run under floor to re emerge through the gunwale hatch area.
