This is our new 7.5cc nitro racing mono that we designed and developed to race at the IMBRA
Championships in 2018. 1070mm long. Designed like the larger Kraken
52 with high tapered
sides to prevent diving in the corners and it has full length rails for speed.
This boat can be supplied with 5" wooden rails fitted.
All of our racing boats are
made from epoxy and glass or carbon kevlar and are vacuum moulded with
multiple layers of material. This gives a very light and strong moulding
which is far better than normal fibreglass. Do
not confuse these boats with normal fibreglass boats. These are top
quality lightweight epoxy mouldings made with up to 5 layers of
glass or 4 layers of glass one of carbon and kevlar and
slow setting epoxy resin which means no distortion, no gel coat
cracks and they are VERY strong. These boats are hand
laid up in a ceramic mould. The mould and moulding are vacuum
bagged and left in an oven for 16 hours at 50C and then post cured at
25C for 24 hours after removal from the mould. They are then
joined with kevlar or glass and again cured overnight in the oven.
This makes for an extremely strong, stiff and lightweight racing
boat. Carbon kevlar is incredibly difficult to damage. The
engine tank cover is made from epoxy glass to prevent radio problems.
