Prout 50 Specifications - Standard Equipment General Construction Hull - The hull is molded using the latest molding techniques and to minimize the risk of osmosis, gelcoat is of the isophthalic type. The first layers of glass are powder bound laid with isophthalic resins using the Scott Bader system which is guaranteed for five years against osmosis. Incorporated in the lay-up are biaxial fibers and balsa topsides. High-stress areas are reinforced with Kevlar. Deck - The deck molding uses top-quality Lloyds approved materials and incorporates balsa sandwich to give strength where required. It is also reinforced at high-stress areas and where fittings are sited. Incorporated in the deck lay-up are the latest biaxial materials for strength and weight saving. Bulkheads - All main bulkheads are substantially bonded and stitched after the first layers with unidirectional rovings. The bulkheads are located at strategic points to give compressional and torsional strength where required. Some are vacuum bagged composite construction for effective weight saving and strength.
