Who actually built the hull? We had a Standfast 36 for years, loved her... but the actual hull construction for that series was done by a neighboring firm, Peterson
IIRC, who mostly did FG vessels for the navy
At any rate, she was done in Airex foam core
, but with FG scantlings of great thickness.
One 40 was dropped from the slings in a boatyard in San Diego
, landing on its keel
and then sliding down a bank, landing then upon another boat, doing it grievous injury. The PJ when then surveyed had only cosmetic damage. We met that boat in the South Pacific
years later, and she was still alive and well.
