25 mil gelcoat, your choice of colors. Anti-fouling paint molded in below the waterline. 6" bulwark molded in at the hull sheer to mate with glass deck. Layup: 1 layer each of 3/4 oz. Mat 7 1/2 oz. Cloth, 3/4 oz. Mat, then 7 layers of 24 oz. Roving topsides, 9 layers of roving 1 foot above the waterline and down. Last 6 layers

doubled over center seam. 6 extra layers down stem and stern. The lines, of course, are Atkin's original; still proven superior to all modifications.



1" AA marine plywood glassed to hull and deck. Wood is pretreated for maximum resin penetration, then set on 1/2" foam strips on the hull to prevent hard spots and five proper contour for bonding of glass. Bonded to hull with I layer mat and 3 layers roving, 12" wide, each side of the bulkhead.



Heavy glass laminate wrapped around Klegecell foam core. Installed with massive bronze gudgeons and pintles. It wasn't until we felt we could build a rudder strong enough to hold 13 tons of boat adrift backwards that we finally felt secure in offering a rudder for the Ingrid.

Bulkhead to deck joints glassed with 1 layer mat and 3 layers 18 oz. Roving. The deck to hull bond makes the difference between a pleasant, dry interior and a

constantly wet boat at sea.



8,000 pounds total. Approximately 7300 pounds steel and 700 pounds resin and sand. Placed inside the keel full fore and aft from bobstay iron to the stern shoe, approximately 20" deep at the deepest part. Glassed over with 1 layer 2 oz. Mat, 6 layers roving to provide a double-bottomed boat, box beam rigidity, immense strength. Cooper screen laid under the ballast with copper cables up to each bulkhead for a ground plane for long distance radio. Also serves as grounding for all fittings. Limber pipe laid in ballast to drain water under the tanks. If you want extra tankage volume, lead may be substituted for steel. Price quoted at time of construction.
