A series of fiberglass laminates follows to complete the hull skin. The hull is supported by a one-piece fiberglass longitudinal grid that is held precisely in place with a jig and fiberglassed to the hull. Holes are drilled and the hollow stringer system is filled with foam and sealed off""the closed-cell foam used throughout the hull, including inside the hollow stringers, deadens sound, stiffens the structure and makes the boat unsinkable.
