Re: Interesting Sailboats

Thanks Paulo!
I believe they are very well engineered (since I have seen them on more expensive brands) and may be not less stiffer than the fibreglass hull that would not make any difference in the event of an impact with something stiffer than both of them. If they are scratched from outside unlike fibreglass it would not be possible to repair those inserts. If side docked you need to adjust fenders not to cover and potentially scratch them. But I am also sure that those inserts will add additional cost without many light benefits and you need to add blinders from inside.
