1 . CONSTRUCTION
HULL NUMBER Oyster 575/12.
HULL CONSTRUCTION A composite construction, moulded using a combination of vinylester and polyester resin with the outer topside finish in a white special NPG gelcoat. Laminate material comprises a combination of E-Glass, Kevlar and Carbon Fibre.
The topside laminate incorporates a high-tech, balsa-cored, E-Glass/Carbon sandwich above the waterline, for additional strength, stiffness and insulation.
Below the waterline, the hull features a monolithic (single-skin) composite laminate, with an Aramid/Kevlar layer, reinforced with a matrix of stringers and floors.
Combined with BS1088 standard marine-ply structural bulkheads, this produces a robust structure, with excellent strength to weight qualities and proven longevity.
Additional reinforcements are included in the way of the keel recess, the keel longitudinals, mast bulkhead, P-bracket, forestay and hull stringers. Limber holes and/or tubes are installed at appropriate points.
Stringers, bulkhead landings and floors are formed over a non-structural, inert, polyurethane foam.
