We have confidence in our boats, you should too. Confidence in knowing that we will warranty the hull of our boats for LIFE against punctures and leaks, no questions asked. The hulls of our boats are built to see the abuse they will encounter. The bottom of each boat we build begins as a ½” Hydrotek Meranti Marine Plywood and is layered in almost 24 ounces of Fiberglass and Kevlar encasing the interior and exterior of the hull extending about 5 inches up the sides. Then the Chines are reenforced with another 24 ounces of Biaxial Fiberglass Tape for added strength.
What is Hydrotek you ask?
BS 1088 Hydrotek is a multi-ply marine plywood that is superior to all standard Meranti plywood currently produced. Both face and inner plies are constructed from whole piece, color matched, Meranti veneers. Hydrotek is used in boat building applications where only the best will do. Hydrotek’s durable rating will ensure that you are using a marine plywood that will last a lifetime.
BS 1088 presents a solid surface that is free from open defects and knots. The veneers are free from irregular grain. Boards can be sanded on both sides. Hydrotek has excellent machining properties as it can be easily sawn and bored leaving smooth edges. It also has good nailing and screw-holding properties and is easy to stain and glue.
Hydrotek Meranti has superior durability and insulation properties compared to other timbers commonly used in marine applications. Due to the multi-ply construction, its strength properties are superior to other marine plywood available.
Face Veneers: No structural defects allowed/Appearance grade face and back, color matched.
Core Veneers: All core veneers are comprised of whole piece veneers ensuring absolutely no core voids
So, our boats are truly built to last a lifetime. We expect our boats to take abuse on the shallow, rocky rivers of the Smoky Mountains which is why we stand behind our boats. We will also take care of any other repairs due to long term use, accidents or negligence for a very reasonable charge. This would include any re-glass work, repairs to the chines repaint or touchup.
