DualGuard™ Composite Construction and SCRIMP Process:
Hinckley’s DualGuard™ construction has a skin coat of chopped E-glass mat in low-shrink Vinylester resin, an outer skin of Kevlar/E-glass, a core of end grain resin-sealed aircraft-grade balsa and high-density foam and an inner skin of carbon fiber.
In areas such as the hull/deck connecting flange, jet intakes, and all through-hull fittings, the core is eliminated and the hull is massively reinforced with additional layers of fiberglass. A reinforcement stringer system of carbon is inserted into the hull, and the completed laminate (hull stringer system) is then SCRIMPed.
The patented SCRIMP process, an advanced closed-molding, resin infusion technique, uses a strong vacuum to saturate or infuse the “sandwich” with Vinylester resin in a single step. Marelon ball-valve type seacocks are then installed flush with the hull. The hull shell is supported by a combination of foam cored FRP stiffeners laminated to the primary hull and structural bulkheads.
These materials and building techniques provide for a superior surface finish, greater resistance to osmosis, high degree of stiffness and stiffness/weight ratios, greater hull strength against impact damage and thermal insulation.
There is a stainless steel-capped aft spray rail and a custom 3/4” stainless chafe strip across the transom. The swim platform, mounted on stainless steel brackets, has teak inserts, a stainless steel trim cap and a stainless steel swim ladder under.
Entry to the boat is from either side using a removable teak boarding step or via the transom. A centerline transom door with stainless steel clasps provides walk-thru from the swim platform.
