  1. 1D35 in Newport area did just that a few years back. If I remember correctly they dry sailed the boat out of Sail Newport and won a lot of races as bigger and bigger chunks of gelcoat fell off the sides
  2. Join Date: Feb 2001 Location: ft lauderdale, fl Posts: 1,289 The concept was to build the boats using epoxy and balsa/divinycell coring and a gelcoat finish. Problem is that gelcoat (polyester) does not "stick" to epoxy. They could have built the boats in a mold with epoxy for strength but then would need to sand and prime for a paint (awlgrip/imron/etc) finish which would have been expensive.
