Rock solid, smart construction makes the boats easy to maintain.
When you come form a neighborhood as rough as ours, you learn how to make good fishing boats tough. Boats that hold up to heavy sea conditions time after time. Boats you can count on.
For that, we start with proven construction techniques enhanced with the latest technology. Which means super strong hull bottoms laminated to exacting thickness. Then, just to make extra sure, we overlap critical stress points like the chines and keel with extra layers of glass for superior strength.
Then the liners and deck are precision-fitted and glassed-in permanently for an inseparable bond. The result: structural integrity made to take what Mother Ocean might give.
Heavy-duty engine mounts are through-bolted to the stringers thus spreading the force evenly the length of the vessel, reducing vibration.
All through-hull fittings are anti-corrosive bronze or stainless steel, never plastic or composite. And every metal fitting below the waterline is bonded for protection against electrolysis.
The custom-made, baffled fuel tanks are carefully balanced then secured aft of the helm deck, then vented outboard to prevent odors from entering the cabin. The over-sized air intakes are placed above the shear so engines won’t clog from sucking salt air.
