1965 34' Hatteras

What is ALL material used in the hull of a 34'1965 Hatteras/ I'm told this hull is a "battle wagon" and timeless? and it rides better than any new Grady 33' ever could?

Welcome to the forum...not sure about the hull, but back then they were still sorting out how best to us FG so some boats of that era had pretty thick hulls.

Aloha and welcome aboard!
You might want to post your question in a different thread. Just go to forums at the top of the page and choose which you'd like.
James is right. Old hulls up until the mid 70s were really layed up thick because they didn't know how strong finberglass was. I'm assuming the Hatteras is a fiberglass boat?
kind regards,
