SHOOFLY’s hull has a Divinycell foam core and a full length 1/4" Corten steel box frame along the centerline and above the keel. There are a pair of full length 1 1/2" x 3 1/2" fiberglass bilge stringers. The mast and engine both land to the steel frame. Bulkheads are fiberglass with a 1" (25mm) Divinycell core. The hull laminate is E-glass and isophthalic polyester resin. The hull and the keel were faired and templated in 2010.  All bottom paint was stripped, and a new epoxy barrier coat was added and then repainted in 2019. The elliptical spade rudder is an upgraded Carl Schumacher design that was rebuilt by Integrated Composites. They used epoxy and foam for a new blade.It has a composite fiber lower rudder bearing.

Original drawings of the boat are included.
