The "vee" plywood bottom section contributes to the stiffness of the hull and provides a good measure of abrasion resistance for landing, lightly I hope, on a rocky beach.

The Dacron is applied in one piece and is stuck to the plywood with a tough Zip-guard finish.

The quadruple chine, Geodesic part of the design configuration, contributes to a good looking lap streak appearing Nordic pram hull.

An interesting innovation is an optional flotation seat cushion that is a zippered waterproof dry storage chamber. It is made from durable Expedition Nylon.
