CHIMERA’S hull and deck were laminated using the SCRIMP resin infusion process, creating a hull lamination that is completely uniform in the resin-to-fiber ratio, as well as complete adhesion of the balsa core material to the inner and outer skins.  The SCRIMP process results in an extremely strong hull and deck structure.  There are two (2) watertight bulkheads – one forward of the master head, and one at the aft end of the master stateroom.  The Master Stateroom also features a watertight door for increased safety and vessel integrity.The rudder and stock are carbon fiber, while the centerboard is fiberglass with hydraulic lift arm.The hull is beautifully finished in Hinckley’s signature Flag Blue Awlgrip with gold leaf cove striping, double-white boot stripe and vivid red bottom paint.  The hull was painted in 2015 and the bottom in January 2019.  In 2015, the cabin top and non-skid surfaces were painted Awlgrip White and the teak decks were pulled and replaced with new as well.
