Subject: Hull Construction M40

I'm looking to buy a live aboard cruising boat later this year and the M40 has caught my eye. Until I found this site I was having a hard time finding out much of anything on the M40's. This is a great site. My thanks for making so much information available.
I'm curious as to how the fiberglass hulls were built during the early 70's. We're they all hand laid with matt, or cored, or what? I did a search on the message board, but didn't find anything, or maybe just didn't get far enough. I've owned a few catalinas, and like to do all my own maintenance. Hence, I'm curious as to the original construction of a boat.
Thanks for letting me post my question.

[> Solid fiberglass -- Gitano, - Wednesday - 03/18/09 - 3:54pm

Hello Jerry,
They are hand-layed solid roving and polyester resin. They were much thicker than needed because back then noody knew the true strength. The resins do not blister. Please visit the website: http://www.marineryachts.com/fey/fey.htm
