On this 30m yacht, the owner complained about the noise made by the waves on the hull of the boat.
The Argentinian architect Enrique Mitch offered us a drawing of a modification so that the waves no longer hit under the hull of the boat right next to the owner’s cabin. In practice, it was necessary to add elements to create this new shape. The modification concerned approximately 9 meters from the bow. As the boat was made of aluminum, it was impossible to laminate the new elements directly on the hull. So it was first necessary to make two pieces of fiberglass molded on the hull as base for our modifications. These parts have been bonded with a flexible elastomer bond from Kent Marine, allowing a good grip between the laminate and the aluminum of the hull.
We have divided our modification into 4 different pieces per side (8 in total) to facilitate the installation. These pieces were made of fiberglass in the workshop thanks to the Infusion Technology, then laminated one by one to our base.
A serious calculation of the necessary scantling allowed us to keep our peace of mind when the slings came to grab this 102 ton boat !
