Hull, Deck, Pilothouse Construction

I cannot say enough about the quality and the open ocean capability of this custom-built 48 Wood Diesel Duck.  Do not let the wood construction close your mind to this work of art.  She is built like a tank. Vicki-Lynn hull construction is of the composite type with one layer of white oak, (2) 5/8 layers of Douglas fir and (2) layers of 7oz. fiberglass cloth laminated with West Systems Resin.  Framing is made from 3X5 white oak bonded to the hull to further stiffen the hull.  The superstructure is constructed of (3) layers of Douglas plywood with (2) layers of 7oz. fiberglass cloth laminated with West Systems Resin.  The deck framing used was 2X4 of White oak and laminated as the rest of the vessel.  Even underneath the joints are bonded.  I could go on and on with construction details, but I believe boat people will get the picture.
