Accommodations: Accommodations V-berth forward, head with Y-valve, storage locker opposite head, large salon with fold out dining table. Full Galley


Mechanical Equipment: Construction Construction of hull was very high quality, using .06 Isothalic gel coats and laminating resin. The 4 layers of 1.5 oz. mat and 24 oz. Woven roving were laid down longitudinally, over the full length of the hull, with 12 overlaps at the waterline, garboard area, and keel. One additional layer was laid down from above the WL to mid-keel and 2 additional layers from mid keel to the centerline. When the hull was complete, a 4 inward turning hull flange was laminated to the upper 12 of the hull, doubling the thickness at the sheer. The production rate was slow, allowing each hull about 3 weeks in the mold. The hull mold was a one piece lamination, heavily reinforced, and set on rollers. The deck mold was adapted from Morgan 40 tooling. The deck lamination schedule included .06 ISO gel coat and 1.5 oz. Mat, 2 layers of mat and 24 oz. Woven roving, a 0.5 plywood core bedded with wet chop over all deck surfaces, including the cabin sides and 1 additional layer of 1.5 oz. Mat and 24 oz. woven roving. Most Horizon boats were finished with traditional interiors.
