Hull and Construction

Hull Construction

The hull is constructed of hand-laid white GRP using woven rovings and chopped strand mat with integral stiffening.  Four full-width plywood bulkheads are bonded to the hull and deck, complete with bonded longitudinal stringers with hardwood inserts which form the engine bearers to complete the hull stiffening.  The hull is completed with a white gel coat complemented by dark blue waterline and dark blue & red boot-top lines in a traditional Trader finish.  The bathing platform is integral to the hull and is teak laid.
Stainless steel inward opening hull ports throughout the length of the hull.  Two large stainless steel inward opening ports in transom (allowing escape from master cabin).

Deck, Superstructure & Flybridge Construction

The deck, superstructure & flybridge are constructed of hand-laid white GRP in the same manner as the hull.  The deck & superstructure and flybridge structures are separate mouldings from the hull structure.  The aft deck is fully protected by a GRP-moulded deckhead running aft of the flybridge structure.  The superstructure is bolted and bonded to the hull along the bulwark line.  The side decks feature a GRP raised bulwark.  The deck areas are sheathed in prime quality teak with black caulking compound between planks.
