Safety and speed are known to be his hallmarks. Functionality and fun also played a large part in his designs. Unique to the Nantucket Island is the lead filled FRP keel.

There is 8800lbs of ballast which fills the void in the keel which is then glassed over. If the keel strikes and underwater object and is holed, it is sealed so that no sea water can leak into the bilge.
The flush deck is solid fiberglass with no wood core to rot out. Nantucket islands are designed to withstand the rigors of a life at sea and hold up to the ravages of time. Nantucket Island yachts are hand laid FRP and are very strong. The hull thickness ranges from 1 inch to ¾”. Deck thickness ranges from ¾” to ½”.
