So the foam the surveyor
was referring to is the stuff that's injected into the pockets? or did they still use foam to stiffen the hull
? Just curious...
I guess they used foam inbetween glass, first to spred the wieght, second to lower production coast...the T27 was a prototyp ans was made in 3 different flavors...the last being a full keel
imitation of the contesa 26.
I am still waiting for the surveyors report...he only mentioned a little dampness in that earea...remember the survey
was to know if the boat cauld cross the atlantic...so he must be objective in his report.
so far the boat has nothing sirious and is in overhall good condition.
