Construction (From Owners Manual)

Hull The hull is a single unit fiberglass molding, which is hand laminated using the finest marine grade polyester resin. All fiberglass materials are precut using templates to maintain design thicknesses throughout the hull. Isothalic gelcoat, approximately 20 - 25 mm thick, is sprayed onto the highly polished hull mold, then one layer of 1.5 ounce gun roving is placed throughout the hullkbto provide a strong and even back-up for the gelcoat finish. This initial back=up layer is placed with vinylester resin, the balance with polyester resin.

The structural laminate is formed with alternate layers of 24 oz. bi-directional glass and 3/4 oz. mat. Unidirectional roving and additional reinforcement are used in high stress areas. Balsa core panels, 1/2" thick, are used to provide additional strength and stiffness with a minimum of weight.

Additional reinforcing is provided in all key stress areas by overlapping extra layers of fiberglass. Foe example, there are 18 layers at the stem, 22 layers at the keelson, and 29 layers where the keel is attached to the hull.

Deck: The Sabre 42 deck is a single unit, hand laminated, fiberglass molding, with nonskid surface molded in. One layer of 1.0 ounce fiberglass mat is initially placed throughout the deck to provide a strong and even back-up for the gelcoat finish. This is followed by one layer of 1.5 ounce mat, one layer of 10 ounce cloth, and one layer of 1.5 ounce mat. End grain balsa coring of various thicknesses is then applied to all walking surfaced and other stress areas of the deck. Additional reinforcing is provided in key stress areas, such as the mast collar, rudder post, and stanchion bases, using appropriate thicknesses of marine plywood. The deck laminate is then finished with one layer of 1.5 ounce mat and one layer of 24 ounce roving.
