AUS 14

Can anyone tell me the hull material for Jeff's AUS14 at the worlds please?

It looks remarkable similar to Texalium in the few fotos I've seen but I am sure it isn't.

Good Sailing and keep it clean guys!

Ken,
Are you saying that you know that this hull has a metalic paint finish that lets the fibre show though and imitates Texalium or are you just making a less informed guess?

Thanks,
Roy Thompson

Hi Roy

Custom paint jobs can now replicate any finish, we have a C/F (paint) boat in our fleet indistinguishable from the real thing.

Regards

Ken

Hi Roy,

are you setting the tone for the new executive. The boat is painted to look like texalium. But ha don't worry that it passed measurement at the event you just light the match!!!!!

Congrats to Brad and to all the others that were right up there at the end. It was so close, a cliffhanger but it produced a worthy champion. Must try harder with my boat..........

Hello all,
