Re: Lagoon Cat smashed in Thailand

This wasn't an accident, someone got sick of the stuffy bridge deck cabin, cut it of and now have a beautiful open bridge deck Lagoon!

Damn funny responses. Empathy, I don't see a but. Just be glad it was a charter and hopefully every one onboard can tell about it.

It is sad, but this was nobody’s home. It was a charter boat. And this stuff happens all the time when the qualifications are "Did you ever float a sailboat in your bath tub" YES

Charter boats are GREAT

Re: Lagoon Cat smashed in Thailand

What is the thickness of the outer skin?

I imagine once this is pierced the whole sandwich structure goes very quickly?

I don't see how piercing the outer skin causes the sandwich structure to go quickly, especially if it's a foam core.

Because you have one or because there are arguments and facts that prove otherwise?

The way I got educated in sandwich lamination, once the skin is damaged the panel loses a huge portion of its strength.

The same happens if delamination occurs (say from impact or when the core shears). See Nandor Fa boat.

So, where did I imagine wrong?
