Bavaria hull problem ??

hey,
today I was at the Istanbul boatshow.
I visited allmost all sailboats.
A little worry when I inspected the hull of the new Bavaria 46 Cruiser.
You can see the pics below.
I you look in detail, you can clearly see the position of the ribs. The paint shows
ribs about every 20-30 cm. is that normal to see those ribs ? it is not a continuous surface. Didn t see that on any other yacht.
Is that normal ??

Ribs are good in general the strengthen the hull.

Re: Bavaria hull problem ??

yes ı agree but it doesn t show off on any other boat. Is it notmal that you can see that from the outside ? it makes a clear angle at each.

Shouldn't see it from outside , unless strongly backlit. Sometimes in boat shows with very bright lights you see a few funny GRP things.

Re: Bavaria hull problem ??

i am positive it is not part of the design ....ripples in the hull are not in the program.....I hope someone from Bavaria will chime in and teach me....

Re: Bavaria hull problem ??

Bavaria uses an internal grid from what I have seen. These grid structures are normally glued in while the hull is in the mold. It may be it was pulled to soon before a full cure (often the case because the mild is needed for the next build) or there was pre-release in the mold. This is sort of like print through in the days of 25 oz roving. Pretty typical of a production boat
