The custom designed 14m is a combination of DuFLEX Composite Panels cored with DIAB’s Divinycell H80 and HM100 structural foam cores, with some panels laminated with unidirectional laminates so they could be strip-planked to conform to the more compound sections of the outer topsides and wingdeck areas. Divinycell HM100 was used in the hull bottom and lower topsides to provide extra toughness to absorb high dynamic impacts and slamming loads.
Bulkheads, hull soles, cabin sides, side decks, etc were all supplied as CNC routed Component packs and are being installed at this time.
Noosa Marine used Techniglue R60 cartridges, in conjunction with the proprietary DuFLEX Z-Press ,to speed up the panel joining process, and WEST SYSTEM and KINETIX R246TX/ H160 epoxy systems are being used throughout the vessel for bonding, taping and additional laminating of the strip planked sections .
ATL engineers worked with Roger to maximise performance, and keep weight to a minimum, to provide a very comfortable, stylish vessel for cruising on the North Queensland coastline.
More updates as the build progresses.
