As for construction, Starcraft starts with 22 mils of ISO-NP gelcoat, followed by a blister-resistant barrier coating to help ensure long-term good looks. For durability, Starcraft fully encapsulates the integral stringer system, using alternating layers of 24-ounce woven roving and 60-mil fiberglass matting. An 8-inch overlap is made along the keel to ensure the boat is the strongest where it needs to be. The deck incorporates Coremat, a nonwoven product that provides bulk and extra stiffness, and prevents print-through, further enhancing the looks and durability of the boat. Our test boat gleamed proudly in the morning sun.
