Peterson says the Skiff Challenge hull weighed 100 lb/45.5 kg less than the standard Biscayne hull. He adds that the Crestapol resin bonds better to carbon fiber/ Innegra than other resin types, which allowed Hell's Bay to use less resin and thus reduce hull weight. The resin, he says, is able to absorb energy without cracking or fail- ing: "This high-tech resin gave us a super-light but super- tough hull." Peterson and his son JC Peterson repeated their 2017 win, completing the grueling trip in 38 hours. Source | Hell's Bay LARGE FORMAT. RIGID PRECISION. | MORE THAN A MACHINE.
