carbon fibre skiff hulls

Approached by a local boat builder to make three 14' skiff hulls was like a trip back in time when I started out working as a boat builder. Using pre-preg carbon fibre over a male mould, we laid up the hulls and deck components. Vacuum bagged, oven-cured and pre-preg carbon fibre proved a good combination as the hulls come out with a good weight and excellent structural rigidity. Following on from the 14' skiffs, two Cherub hulls were also produced in the same materials and method.
