CONSTRUCTION Cold molded wood/epoxy/fabric: This hull model has a double-laminate bottom keel plank, with an elliptical-section bilge using three laminations of ¼” plywood. Topside planking uses full sheets of ½” plywood. This lamination technique was developed by South African designer Dudley Dix—the prototype racing sailboat crossed the Atlantic on her maiden voyage. Decks—foam core/marine ply over sawn beams. Covering system—epoxy impregnated Xynole-polyester cloth finished with linear polyurethane paint systems. Spars–mast(s) hollow octagonal (Bird’s Mouth) laminated Douglas fir/epoxy, booms solid Douglas fir. Interior—painted ply trimmed with varnished hardwoods.
