Hull Specification…

The hull and deck assemblies imported this winter are built by XSP to the new specification, including the new centreboard case and thwart arrangement, revised deck laminate and the exclusion of the plastic Harken handholds.  These changes to the hull and deck mouldings were made two years ago, though this new batch will be the second of the new-style boats to be brought into the UK.  The changes fall into three categories:

1.  Some areas of the boat have been strengthened…

  • The side decks and cockpit sides have been strengthened and stiffened
  • The thwart has been reinforced

2.  Other changes have been made in order to maintain overall hull weight…

  • The foam thickness on topsides, forward and aft decks has been reduced from 8mm to 6mm
  • Wood backing pads have been replaced with GRP reinforcement

3.  The old daggerboard case has been replaced with a foil shaped box…

  • The block of crash foam behind the board is no longer required
  • The new box is able to accommodate a daggerboard with the same section as the 29er
  • However there has been no change to the daggerboard section or size, so we will still need some material around the box perimeter top and bottom to make the board slide as it should

Tasar Weight…

The new hull and deck assemblies are approximately 1.5kg heavier than the previous specification; the minimum weight of hulls leaving the XSP factory will now be 61kg.  There is, however, no change to the minimum weight of boats in measurement trim, which remains 68kg, allowing 6kg or 7kg for the weight of fit-out equipment.  The equipment selected to be on the standard Signal Locker Measurement Boat standard specification will typically weigh close to 6kg, however it is possible for the fit-out weight to be anywhere between 5.5kg and 9kg, depending on the exact equipment selected.
