The Floor stringer framing includes the forward Furniture liner, forward floor, main cabin and cockpit sole.

The under-floor cavities on both sides of the center area of the hull are totally injected with closed cell expanded floatation foam from the transom to the main dash bulkhead area.

The main Gunwale Deck is adhesed and mechanically fastened to the gunwale flange. It includes inner coamings and non skid surface molded in the gelcoat during lamination.

The Superstructure includes wheelhouse, trunk cabin, windshield facets.

It is molded to fit down into the inner coamings of the gunwale deck and is adhesed in place as well as through bolted w- stainless steel bolts.

It is flanged inward at the top of the parameter and down the back ends for maximum strength and the attachment of the one piece roof and main back bulkhead.

The Dash - Companionway Bulkhead is built to accept the one-piece sliding companionway door and operator console.

Outboard motor well is a one-piece molded unit adhesed and mechanically fastened to the gunwales and transom.

Wheelhouse and main salon - cockpit floors are one-piece molded cored components that incorporate molded non skid surface.

The steering and control console is a one-piece molded unit incorporating special areas for large electrical breaker panel, steering (hydraulic or mechanical), engine instrumentation gauges, etc.

The console is easily removable as well as there being a large access panel in the main dash bulkhead to the wiring and console equipment.
