Re: Is a 44 Bavaria suitable for sailing in rough seas?

The interesting thought assuming that the boat is in fact as represented is how does a crap boat come off the line after it has been built with all the modern techniques that we always hear about when comparing new methods to older methods.

That is a good question. That is a 2007 boat. Since then more automation and robotics were introduced on the shipyard but no automation and smart machines prevents completely human error, it only diminishes the probability.

Re: Is a 44 Bavaria suitable for sailing in rough seas?

Well, after see those nasty pics 3 times, here are my 2 cents, probably a human error, decks are moulded and laminated following a laminate schedule, that mean that the dimensions are the same for each model , but ,but ,,, when they lift the deck in the crane to perform the hull deck marriage its the crews who are responsible for a even fit in the whole perimeter, the deck is probably 1 1/2 inch leaning to one side , and the flange in the other side split because the flange in the deck side is loading the tip of the other hull flange , thats why so many drilling holes and a screw in the tip edge of the deck ..

Me think they dont lift the deck again and reposition well, to much goops of poly stuff 5200 or whatever **** and a full mess, they just leave like that and move to next, marvel production lines......

Re: Is a 44 Bavaria suitable for sailing in rough seas?

This past season I gel planed both a 86 52 Irwin, and a 33 Mason. Thick as a brick. You could of pressed a flood light against the hull and no light would come through. Same as on My 15.5 Idylles when I planed mine. Anyone on here telling you the contrary doesn't do this for a living and I would bet has never Gelplaned the hull of a boat before.

Wrong. If it has no core and no interior paint you can see light through 3/4" thick GRP.

This is the Irwin just after we planed the hull. Your not going to see any light through that hull.

Really, when is the last time you Gelplaned a hull? I didn't think so. Irwin is solid glass.

If your poured just resin and activator in a cup 3/4" yeah, duhh. If you laid up alternating 2 0z mat with bi weave and woven roving to 3/4 inch you wouldn't see crap.

Re: Is a 44 Bavaria suitable for sailing in rough seas?

I was inside the boat, putting in new thru hulls. Couldn't see a thing pal. Another genius giving bad advice. Go buy a new tape measure. I'm done the moderator will of had enough of this banter.

Re: Is a 44 Bavaria suitable for sailing in rough seas?

Thank you for calling me a genius. My mother feels the same way. I have seen light through a 3/4" inch hull. You mileage may vary.
