- HULL and DECK
- Topsides: Flag Blue Awlgrip Bootstripe: Double white and a blue Cove: Gold leaf Bottom: Blue House & Deck: Polar White gelcoat with Teak deck overlay Cockpit seats - Camel brown molded nonskid Exterior trim: Varnished teak Custom hull ports Teak decks. Construction: The Sou'wester 42 hull is constructed using the SCRIMP® process to infuse vinylester resin in a single step under a vacuum into a cored laminate of Kevlar/E-glass. Dupont Kevlar fabric greatly increases the strength of the hull against damage caused by impacts and the aircraft grade balsa core provides the greatest degree of stiffness and thermal/acoustic insulation. The skin coat is chopped mat in low-shrink vinylester resin to provide a superior surface finish and a greater resistance to water osmosis. Core is removed and hull is reinforced with additional layers of fiberglass in stress areas. A fiberglass hull stringer system is bonded to the hull and integrated with the mast step and engine mounts to form a single unit that is strong and light. The deck and house are a Scrimp® molded in one piece which incorporates a hybrid knit fabric of Kevlar/E-glass to reduce weight and a core of aircraft grade balsa, which is deleted in major penetration and stress areas and replaced with solid layers of reinforcing glass. The hull is laid up with a 4" recessed flange to receive the deck which is bonded to this surface with reinforced polyester adhesive and thru-bolted on 8' centers with additional fastenings in the area of toe rail tracks, thus assuring a strong, permanent and watertight hull/deck joint. Keel: 9,000 lb. molded lead keel is secured to the hull with 1" stainless steel bolts. Centerboard: Molded solid Fiberglass Rudder: Skeg-hung rudder. Marelon ball-valve type seacocks are flush with the hull.
