Deck and Hull

All deck and work areas are white molded non-skid.  The deck is made of single-piece molded fiberglass construction, balsa cored in all horizontal-areas for rigidity and locally reinforced in high stress areas. The deck has full-length molded bulkheads with an anodized aluminum, oval  toe-rail cap extrusion,  which the hull and deck through-bolts are fastened.  There are forward, mid-ship, and aft aluminum mooring chocks, each leading to its own mooring cleat.  Vinyl coated 7 x 19 stainless steel upper and lower lifelines with gates and braces lead through stainless steel stanchions the  bases are through bolted to the deck for added safety and security.  The double bow rail  and stern pulpits are constructed from stainless steel.  The stern rail includes an integral fold-down boarding and swim ladder with teak treads.  The mast collar casting is mechanically fastened to a heavily reinforced and substantial hull-deck structure. Teak handrails along the cabin top and a teak nosing strips running around the circumference of the cabin and cockpit coaming chine add a level of class and safety.  There are four large recessed side deck scuppers with molded scupper drains.
