How construction changes

Recommended Posts

Reading the other post about Kauri triple skinned beasts, double diagonal Macrocarpa and so on got me looking at my beast. It's handy time as she has suffered a bad case of McCulloch and other assorted powered destruction lately.


The top panel (in the photo below) being what was considered lightweight back on the day, a day not really that long ago. Polyester resin, chopped strand and Coremat aka resin sponge.


The bottom one is more todays style.... even if what you are seeing is 400gr heavier in the laminate then some pros said to do, I want reliability besides I need the weight. It's carbon, kevlar and some E... glass. That's 12mm foam.


The top panel weighs 9.8kg per sq mt, the bottom one 2.8.


How things change.
