In essence it allows the boat manufacture more control and time when laying up a large GF structure by curing the hull after construction.

I see. So is made out of normal staff is just the finishing process.

Can't understand why this process is more expessive than the normal prosedure?

No, it can be a whole new process depending on the end product, there a lot to it. It can be a higher quality, higher specification construction method and used in conjunction with vacuum forming can produce technically very good products.

...could be because of the elevated temperatures used! Not everything boils down to price....sometimes you have to pay for quality

OK thanks guys. Is just that I've been looking at the OUTERLIMITS power boat and it has a price you won't believe. SO I asked the question and amongst the things they said to justify the huuuuge price it was this Post-Cured Epoxy Construction.

Thanks again

Higher cost of materials


Inner and outer moulds (sometimes)

Vacuum systems

Much more technical and easier to mess up!

Usually used with carbon fibre (more expensive anyway)

You need an oven big enough for the biggest mould

And it's a waste of money for smaller boat as they need to flex and carbon fibre doesn't like doing that - just ask Team Philipps!
All IMHO as we have only ever vacuumed models and never done any post cured stuff ...........

Not sure you're right there John!

But I'm more interested in the 'Jackanory' interest in an Outerlimits!

Like I said the other day, Manos never, ever stops amazing me
