Outerlimits holds an advantage over its competition by employing advanced manufacturing techniques that reduce the hull weight by about 3,000 pounds. High-density foam panels for transom and stringers, plus carbon-fiber stringer caps, are vacuumbagged for optimum resin-to-fiber ratio. Even the new bilge liner is formed of carbon fiber, and it's bonded into the hull. While Skater catamarans use epoxy resins, only Outerlimits post-cures its boats in the oven to ensure a stronger bond. Stronger stringer laminates means only two are needed, which are set farther apart, letting the cabin sole lie lower in the hull, improving headroom.
