Although I've never seen one in the flesh, they strike me as a very elegant coastal cruiser, as long as you didn't opt for the exterior teak cladding on the cabin house. Haven't heard much about them recently. Are they still in business?

Yes, interesting boat, not a big fan of foam core.

Art-- You asked about that big boat in my black and white photos in an earlier post. Yesterday in the yard I was told it was originally a sub chaser. I don't know what the original engines were as the boat has had new engines installed.

Old Deck,
That should be relative to what kind of foam.
Airex foam is one of the best ways of building a boat. Aluminum is about the only material that compares. Quite expensive and I suppose that's the reason most FG boats aren't built w Aiex foam.

Can I say that the helm on this boat is an outstanding example of bad design. And the aft cabin cubbyhole with too-small exterior door always seems an afterthought.....

What about the unprotected sight tube for the fuel tanks? Using vinyl tubing, no petcocks to shut them off if necessary and nothing to prevent something from falling over from hitting the tube and pulling it off the hose barb except a worm gear clamp on each end.

Won't meet ABYC for that alone.

Airex is not used any more because now we have something a lot better. Core-Cell is also a linear foam but is SAN thermoplastic, Airex is PVC. Core-Cell is resistant to styrene, compatible with all resins, not heat sensitive, as strong or stronger than Airex, has far better fatigue strength, and costs less. Almost anyone building high-speed boats today will be using Core-Cell.

Cross-linked PVC foams like Divinycell and Klegecell are stiffer, and are often used in decks and houses. But they have very low impact strength(compared to Airex or Core-Cell) thus are not usually the best choice for hulls.

David Pascoe's web page has convinced me to avoid all foams. Especially below the water line.

Atlas, a 95' Northern Marine which is, I believe, a vague sister ship to the one that toppled over on launch last year.

She is quite a handsome yacht, and is sitting very nicely on her lines.

How could a boat that tall be stable?
It must be really wide.

Lots of ballast below to counteract the weight above the waterline...

I have the same reaction when I see a GH37.

I've seen one in the flesh, even been aboard one at a TrawlerFest. She looks great, but I don't know how practical she's be to actually own. I think it was the one in the pic. I may have some pics stashed away. I'll post them if I can dig them up.

Foam isnt the problem. Water will migrate through it, if there is an exit point. A glassed in stringer with no passage for water to the lowest point in the bilge will stop the migration.

Nothing wrong with being from Down Under as my fellow T Fers will attest.
