Now that the dust has settled a bit, I wanted to thank you all for making the transaction possible. The level of customer service demonstrated by Phil and his staff was nothing less than outstanding. Thank you for all of your hard work in holding the deal together and shepherding it through. I especially appreciate receiving a copy of your book.

On Deck
Pontoons, platform and deck: Vacuum-bound fiberglass composite, polyester resin and PVC foam core (Divinicel).

This construction process adopts the vacuum-bag lamination system which successfully associates resistance with minimal amounts of material. The end result is a lightweight and very resistant composite similar to the kind observed in high-performance racing cars. The fibers contained in this composite run in a multitude of directions to properly meet the strain and tension the vessel experiences.

The structural bulkheads are projected and manufactured in PVC (Divinicel) with vacuum-bound bi-axial glass-fiber. The project includes two water-tight bulkheads in each pontoon.

The rudders are built in polyester-glass, vacuum-bound around a high density PVC (Divinicel) frame.
  • The rudder axles are made of 316 L stainless steel
  • Mechanical nylon sleeves
  • PVC glass-polyester boards

Mast, boom and bow-beam are made of aluminum

The external parts of the pontoons, the deck and cabin are coated with white Gelcoat with pyramidal no-skid in the horizontal segments. The hull is decorated with stripes above the water-line and around the beams.

The part of the hull that is to remain submerged receives an epoxy resin to ward off osmosis.

Application of anti-fouling paint (labor)
The interior of the compartments, pits and storage areas are coated with “gel”.
