Have not heard of any issues related to osmosis
, however I have experienced small blisteres in the cocpit sole of my Belize
. Also some minor airpockets under the gelcoat
causing cracked gelcoat
Believe this could be contributed by intricate shapes, with the use of vacuum moulding this should proably not be an issue.
I would generally say that the build quality of my Belize
and the Athena prior has been up to my expectations. I have some other issues not related to your issue raised here, but they are still a nuicance but not unique to the FP range.
If you consider a cat for your next boat I would surtainly have the FP range on the shortlist based on the general good sailing capability and other clever solutions.
Happy lead free sailing!
