  1. Hi Bob, I'm currently working on a Passport 42C  (original name "Kowloon", original owner Stuart Ehrenreich, built in Hong Kong 89-90, semi custom boat redesigned with deeper keel and rudder, taller mast, etc.). Just wondering if you might have any idea what sort of deck core material was used, the owner is trying hard to find out before we open anything up, she's got a wet deck core after removing the old teak. Thanks!

      Wander:

      Is this a double ender? Or does it have a transom?

      Are you really sure about being built in HONG KONG? Somebody is VERY confused and it's not me.

       I'm certain the confused one is me. Current owner says original owner said Hong Kong, but we all know that may be a catch-all for the entire area. Given the boat's name, I'd expect it was built in Kowloon. I currently have two Passports side by side in the yard, just gave a hull paint job to one, the other is the one in question. Comparing the two, "Kowloon" has a sugar scoop type extension. A pretty short one. Current owner says original owner had the boat extensively redesigned for his purposes. Of course, we must take all hearsay with a big fat grain of salt. Trying to determine deck core material for certain; she's got wet deck. Looks like the old "Taiwan shingle" to me, but thought I'd try to find out for the owner before going big on it, he was led to believe the deck core was Airex. Thanks Bob!
