Re: Updating interior of older catamaran

Rather than starting a new thread. Can someone tell me anything about the hull and deck construction of a Gemini 33 circa 96. No speculative answers please. Short and sweet regarding coring or not and where.

I got off my lazy butt and found a write up on the hull and the deck. Write ups often don't tell the entire story. Experience would be appreciated. Deck coring delamination. Although vinylast (sp?) was used any blistering problems. What power is required to attain hull speed?

Re: Updating interior of older catamaran

I have only been on one older Gemini and the deck was so spongey is was like a trampoline. The rigging was pulling out of the deck, too. That doesn't mean every Gemini is like that, of course, but there is that potential.

Re: Updating interior of older catamaran

On the Gemini 3200 only parts of the deck were cored, the rest solid. The decks were a little bouncy even while in good shape.
