You asked to hearabout the good and bad check on www.spirited380.com
Do not expect any support from them.
Craig is very far from being an engineer
and he did rely on free engineering given by his supplier. But this has limits.
A few of critical issues:
badly manufactured. Rebuilt them with a new shaft and close all the voids between the fibeglass and the foam
Dagger board, that one is the worst, you just cannot use them. They are dangerous. Built in two half and then glued together. Good builder
with good process can acheive it properly. In our case the edges where glue for around 5 cm and the rest was a void. The outside skin was also full of void and not bonded to the foam core
The prodder laminate schedule as to be reviewed, actually an aluminum
one is much cheaper and easy to install than the composite one (I agree that it looks nice, but quie a job)
Push pull cable steering
as in his drawing it just is not proper. Those cable have never been engineered to be used that way. It just one of those cheap
idea that put you in trouble in critical time.
hatche design is just not water
Material delivered with the kit is really insufficient by a ratio of more than 2 and the hours are not realistic for a complete ready to sail boat
