They're all going to be different....

Hull internals take on many forms and configurations, usually two longitudinals running fore to aft with transverse bulkheads is probably the strongest set up usually made from Foam sheet or wood which is encapsulated with Fibre glass.

Smaller hulls have less underdeck structure and some have none at all!! All things built to a price of course. I would imagine that the underdeck structure on yours would be rather sparse.

Hull structure

Here's a shot of the bilge of my boat, aluminum, ribbed somewhat different than most.

My Menai rib hull is constructed with a large fiberglass chassis with a very heavy layup. It is very solid indeed.

This is my second rib, my first rib was a cheap import from the far east It sufferd stress cracking to the hull after a few months. When I got an independent report on the hull it was found to be "lightly constructed with little internal support". I managed to get a full refund on the hull from the supplier.

Contact Tim at Menai Marine if you would like them to make a report on your Seapro.

I was in the new Salcombe Flyer 'factory' with the guy who bought the moulds of Cookee, a couple of years ago - they use the same sort of below-deck structure. Looks a decent concept and on the Menai, it provides a good compartment for a below-deck fuel tank - is this an option on your boat?

X-Craft

we think this is extremely strong.
We use a special core material. No wood in the hull!!
