Remarks : Construction: The hulls are epoxy glass over cedar, with the bridge deck an engineered composite of ply/foam/glass and stringers. Additionally they have Kevlar reinforcing down the centerline from the bows for additional collision resistance. Prior to construction the hull shapes were tested in the Tasmanian towing tank to ensure the hulls could absorb the motor-sailer's power without squatting and creating additional drag. The bridge deck is the main structural member combining the two hulls together, and is extremely strong but light enough to counter the twisting effect as the hulls move through different wave’s off-shore.
