TECHNICAL INFORMATION:

Our fiberglass boats are a laminated structure consisting of layers of gelcoat, reinforcing fiberglass fabrics and bonded together with a polyester resin.

The boats are built in a female mold. A release agent is first applied to the surface of the mold, over which the gelcoat material is applied. Subsequent layers of the laminate are laid up over the gelcoat.

The gelcoat start as pigmented, unsaturated polyester resin and are designed to act as a moisture barrier for the underlying laminate, as well as to provide a smooth, glossy cosmetic finish.

Hull thickness, which is build up with the layering of the fiberglass fabric and polyester resin, may vary from boat to boat. There is no limit to the finished colours of the boats.
