Hull to Deck

The Caliber keel can be best described as a long shoal fin.  This type of keel has become very popular for offshore sailing.  This designed fin in conjunction with a skeg hung rudder can provide excellent directional stability, ease of maneuverability, reduced wetted surface, and improved windward performance.  The bottom of the rudder/skag is much higher than the bottom of the keel for added grounding protection. 

  •     Hand laid fiberglass construction
  •     Reinforced Impact Zones (2 areas).  These areas are heavily laminated with extra layers of solid fiberglass to help minimize damage in case of impact.  ... 1) Bow at water line  2)Leading edge of bottom of keel.
  •     Water tight forward bulkhead … this vertical  bulkhead is above and below water line, near the fore foot.

Caliber uses the horizontal flange method for all the deck to hull connections.  The deck- to- hull joint starts with an inward turning flange on the hull.   The deck, which is slightly oversized, allows the deck flange to be custom fit perfectly to each hull.  Which starts the four - step process of sealing the deck to the hull

  •     FIRST.... a polyurethane adhesive sealant (#5200) is utilized to bond the deck and hull together.  This 3M product is an excellent sealant and a very strong adhesive.
  •     SECOND …. an isoprene copolymer flexible tape is added protection against leakage in this critical seal.  The tape is 1/2" wide and 1/4" high, and is placed along the inside edge of the hull flange, around the circumference of the hull.  It is designed to remain pliable and act as a soft gasket to help prevent water penetration.
  •     THIRD …. after the hull and deck are jointed together, a maintenance free aluminum toe rail is bedded with the #5200 polyurethane marine sealant and bolted on six inch centers with 1/4" 18-8 grade stainless steel carriage bolts.  This toe rail acts as a full-length backing plate to help spread the loads evenly throughout its entire length.
  •     FOURTH …. the outboard edge of the deck to hull connection is then further sealed against moisture intrusion with a maintenance free rub rail.  This is also bedded in the #5200 polyurethane marine sealant.  An easily replaceable,  stainless steel striker rail then caps off the rub rail.   The rub rail acts as a bumper, preventing nicks and dings when the hull scrapes against pilings or docks.

Another nice feature on the Deck-to-hull joints is accessibility to the connection.  With the simple removal of valance covers, the entire perimeter of the deck-to-hull joint system is accessible from the interior of the hull if the need should ever arise.

The heavy stainless steel chain plates are bolted through a chain plate bulkhead.  Firmly attached to the hull utilizing 8 layers of mat and roving running vertically and horizontally on both sides of the chain plate.  the horizontal bulkheads located near the chain plates are also glassed into the hull, spreading the chain plate loads fore and aft. 

The Caliber deck is built with Marine Tech structural coring.  The actual length of the hull (LOH) is 39'1", but the added anchor roller platform/ bow sprit makes the length overall (LOA) 40'11"    The headstay is moved out twelve inches onto the anchor platform to increase the "J" measurement.  Thus, opening up the slot between the headsail and the staysail to create an efficient cutter rig.  The anchor roller extends even farther out beyond the headstay attachment point for easy storage of the main anchor.   The 8" extension plates on the furling drum allows the anchor to be lowered and raised without the shank hitting the drum.  Large anchor well locker with hatch contains a partition to separate rode and chain for 2 anchors.
