Hull and Deck Structure updates and repairs:
The entire deck was opened, wood core removed and replaced with closed cell foam (2005). The entire hull and deck were finished with Awlcraft 2000 and Awlgrip (2019). The hull bottom was professionally treated for osmosis in 2022: Gel-peel down by 3/16?, dried for 7 months and re-laminated with two layers of 1208 bi-axial cloth and epoxy resin, epoxy-phenolic faired, barrier coated with six (6) coats of West System 422 additive and epoxy, primed with two coats of Intertuf 262 primer and three coats of Interspeed 6400NA commercial bottom paint. All lamination and coats were applied ‘green’ for maximum chemical bond and adherence. The hull bottom is stronger than when built and will provide many years of osmosis free service. The Interspeed 6400 typically gives 3 years of protection in commercial service.
