CAT Blisters ??

On the Lagoon Forum Ive asked about blisters there--I want to expand question to all Fiberglass Catamarans. Question: Have you -or do you know of any osmoticblistering on fiberglass Catamarans??? Thanks.

Re: CAT Blisters??

Its a problem related to method and manner of layup of the glass reinforced plastic, quality of the build, quality of the resins, irrespective of the number of hulls. It has been less prevalent in newer cats and monos, not because of the number of hulls but because the technology has got better.

Well George, why don't you just buy that Maine Cat 41. Vinylester and Corecell, Flex-a-Fold props, Marelon thruhulls, travelers and everything else is standard. I'll bet they don't suffer blisters ever. They are just a better built boat. Period.

Re: CAT Blisters ??

My current boat will never get blisters either as its built of epoxy--however my past boatys have a checkered blister history-its something to really watch as Ive seen some cool boats totally destroyed by blisters. In addition to using vinylester resin (Which must be done in very controlled factory conditions and not for amateurs doing repairs) the advent of waterproof gelcoat about 15 years ago has greatly reduced the blister menace).

Re: CAT Blisters ??

Why not stop bothering people with all these crazy questions/ rants about the good or bad of Lagoon cats. Go back to trying to sell your current boat for twice what's it worth for 10x what you paid on EVERY craigslist site in FL!

Re: CAT Blisters ??

Thanks coach---ill ask you some of your own idiocy. "Why dont you beat off more?" (let alone mind your own biz) what are you contributing to the Forum besides giving idiotic advice? BTW- I have a deposit at asking price for my boat -pending survey
